I was shocked and saddened to hear of Miss Jo's unexpected death. Prayers for her and her family, and to those whose broken lives she touched on a daily basis through her work. She will be sorely missed. I do wish, though, that her husband had asked for donations to be made to HER employer, or to those non-profits that SHE was involved with, instead of using this as a way to raise money for HIS employer. I tried all morning to hold that in, but I just couldn't.

How do you know that it was Mrs. Freeman's request that donations be given to the "non-profit" arm of her beloved ASU? She was also deeply involved in ASU causes and she gave graciously and freely to the Universary. It was one of her great around-the-clock "works." She would be so pleased to know that the Unversity will benefit from her passing as it did from her involvement while she lived... When those "broken lives" are mended, the presence of a strong university will offer them another place to seek fulfillment. ...Mrs. Freeman had to endure such constant petty criticism (as yours) of her husband while she lived. It is so sad that even in death,her spirit has to put up with it.
