name : Geraldine Rubin
She was fiercely original, loving and without guile. She wanted to LIVE and only wanted to talk about what we were going to do when she was healthy again. Go hear music...Patti Smith, New Year's Eve, Bowery Ballroom. Go ice skating, what color scarf she would wear. WALK around NYC. In the last month, I kept fearing every conversation might be our last, only to have her shuffle by on her walker, glance at "Super Nanny" and deliver in her best dead pan "In the last episode she kills them all." Her humor remained in tact as long as she was able to speak and probably long after. We miss you, Claudia. We love you and we are with you.
