Rest in Peace, Barbara Curtis

I have not posted in a long while, but today learned of the passing of a lovely woman, Barbara Curtis.  I never met Barbara face to face, and I wish I had, but I had spoken to her over email several times.  Her wit, enthusiasm, and confidence inspired me to have George tested for Autism.  Just last week we received the official diagnosis, Autism Spectrum Disorder (possible Asperger's).  If it weren't for Barbara's encouragement, I might not have had the nerve to go forward with the diagnostic testing.

Barbara converted to the Roman Catholic Church a few years back after a hard life of liberal femininism, and  is survived by her twelve children, several of whom have Down Syndrome among other special needs.

Donations to help her family can be sent to:
