Somber postscript

And, to be sure, shortly after I posted this, I learnt that she had passed away a few hours earlier.  She was determined to do whatever she might, to resist the disease, and she kept a brave and cheerful demeanor throughout.  She had the joy of seeing her Red Sox through a magnificent regular season, and of seeing them vanquish the Yankees for the American League title;  so she passed out of this world with a gratified smile.  We shall miss her.

Innumerable angels sing you to a sweet rest, Adrienne.
