In Memory of Dorothy Gilman (1923-2012)

I just found out that Dorothy Gilman passed away last month on February 2, 2012.

Her stories have brought me great joy and comfort over the years - I loved reading about Mrs. Pollifax. I first read her books as a kid via Mom's Reader's Digest Condensed books (with illustrations too). When I found out there was *MORE STORY*, I raided the library for the unabridged versions. Her books are frequent re-reads. Hard back, paper back and audio book versions. Oh yeah, I've even kept the Reader's Digest versions.
