A Good Woman

I do not know anything about Dana Reeve's personal life, but judging by her public life, she was a good woman. She died today at the age of 44 of lung cancer. Although predominently a smoker's condition, Reeve did not smoke.

What impressed me about her was how she stood by her husband, Christopher Reeve, after his accident and to the end of his life.

Then when she announced she had lung cancer, she acted with grace a dignity. With all the nonsense we witness from stars, it's nice to see some with class.
