My dear friend! I first met Tania at Tail of the Tiger in April 1970. She was so kind in orienting me and understanding of the pain that I was in at that time. We quickly became friends. When we were both in Boulder I worked for her at the New York Deli. Many years of deep conversations and shared experiences. I had so hoped to return from Thailand in time for precious last moments with her. When I did her phowa I felt her power and grace. Strong and clear. Thank you, darling, for all the great years.
