    Dear family,

    What a dear woman, what a stalwart of the dance community! Lorna will be missed. I also so appreciated my time using her beautiful studio.

    My heart is with you, especially Connie. Unfortunately I will be out of town both tomorrow and Saturday. But I will be thinking of you.

    I wish you consolation and peace.
