  One of my all-time favorites - GONE!
  An irreplaceable loss!

       We have lost one of our great writers. Andre Norton is dead.

       >I regret to inform you that our "Lady" is gone. On March 17, 2005 at
  >2:23a.m., Andre departed on her final journey. She left peacefully in her
  >sleep with myself, Ollie and Mark at her bedside. She will be missed
  >terribly and mourned deeply. Her passing leaves a void that can never be
  >filled, as we shall never see the likes of her again. Knowing her has made
  >me a better person. Andre requested that, in lieu of flowers, please send
  >donations to Saint Jude Children's Hospital in Memphis Tennessee or
  >Veteranarian Services, c/o The Noah Fund, P.O. Box 10128, Murfreesboro Tn.
  >37129, in her memory. Because of her love of animals, Andre herself
  >contributed to the Noah Fund which is for people who can not afford
  >medical treatment for their pets. After coming to live with us, and, as
  >our feelings for one another grew, I began calling her "Meemaw". This past
  >week, she said to me, "I have won many awards in my life, I am a Grand
  >Master, some call me the First Lady of Fantasy, and others call me The
  >Grand Damme of Fantasy, but the title I am most proud of is "Meemaw".
  >Eventually, everyone followed suit and "Meemaw" it was. Finally, she had
  >gained the family she had longed for most of her life. I would like to
  >take this opportunity to recognize Kathy Vinson L.P.N. and Jan Hoffmann
  >who were instrumental in the day to day care of Meemaw. She developed a
  >special closeness and friendship with them and, their feelings were
  >mutual. Thanks to all of you for your phone calls, cards, flowers and
  >gifts. Knowing everyone cared so much meant a great deal to her. Her
  >modesty made it difficult for her to fully comprehend the magnitude of the
  >feelings her fans and followers had for her. However, near the end she
  >finally realized how much she was loved and admired by so many.
  >Sue Stewart
