I could write endlessly on this brilliant, funny, creative, incredibly loving person who decided to choose me as a life partner. Mostly what I admired about her was her positivity and her fearlessness. She had unshakable principles and integrity and spoke truth to power. So many of the tributes that have been pouring in about her -- especially from her female colleagues in nutrition and academia -- speak of her inspirational qualities in terms of bravery and boldness. She was a trailblazer and guiding light to so many. She lived her life with great passion, exuberance, and humor, on her own terms and with zero regrets. As crushed as I am to lose her, I feel incredibly priveleged to have had her as my best friend for 30+ years. Rest easy, sweetie. You kicked ass.
