I was so sorry to hear of Hope's passing.  I have great memories of our years in high school - eating lunch at her dad's office and, especially, scooping the loop on Friday nights in her big gun boat of a car.  Her bright eyes and smiling face will be missed.  Rest in peace Hope.

Hope was one of those people that made you feel that everything in living was a fun adventure.  Like, Wanda, one of my great MDB memories was scooping the loop in her big car. People like her are rare and to be treasured.  If only more were like Hope.  Her name is so appropriate.

In 2015, I reconnected with Hope along with Sherwin Krueger and his wife,Susan, in San Francisco and had the pleasure of seeing her for a day. We met her then fiancé Neil Eisenberg. She was very happy and excited about getting married to Neil. I am so pleased I had that day with her and one more a few months later. I am grateful she was with Neil, who is naturally supportive of woman and especially of Hope. She was a lovely person and our class has suffered a loss.
