We lost a beloved member of our family when Mort succumbed to increasingly frequent convulsions and motor aphasia.  Her mixture of calm superiority and zany eccentricity had enhanced our lives for 16 years.  She 'broke in' 3 dobermanns, all of whom treated her with great respect and affection.  She was declared 'President for Life' of Lincoln Model Club, and she never missed a meeting.  She will be greatly missed, as she was greatly loved.

Bye, Mortie!
