Marni Goldman was a remarkable woman. I just went to her memorial service and was astounded by the incredible things she accomplished despite the hardships she faced all her life. It's funny, in some ways I think I wouldn't ever have gotten to know this side of her had she not passed away. But that was her way, it seems - understated but direct. She was the type of person whose life makes one feel silly for every having complained at all. I suppose the thing to do is to take on the challenge posed by her courage and bravery, and pay it forward.
