Two of Valerie’s words really struck me: “support and friendship." For almost twenty years the ladies of Uhuru have given each other, and our community, “support and friendship.” Valerie’s memory of us finds me proud to be a member of Uhuru and especially honored to be your Coordinator. Many of us have close friends in the guild; others may only see or talk to one another once a month when we meet. However, when we meet, we all share the “support and friendship” Valerie speaks of and that is truly wonderful. When I put on my coordinator’s mantle and think about how to better serve you, I brainstorm many thoughts and ideas. I realize today, however, that if we each come away with “support and friendship,” we are all well served.
Cheers to Valerie and all present and former Uhuru Members,
