We all know Mary as a lively, courageous, and innovative trailblazer.  With Ken, Mary created a global community — a family of caring, committed scholars and practitioners whose central desire is to make the world a better place for all.  And, the world is a better place for her presence in it and her connection to us all.  We send our warmest embraces to you all.
