i've been an avid reader of Marilyn's staggering scholarship since 1991 when I first stumbled across her books. I've corresponded with her frequently, and, in the process, become her friend and admirer.
My heart goes out to her over her (temporary) separation from Ed.
While I praise God that her financial needs were met yet again by the Doves, it occurs to me that she now has another huge expense, the funeral and burial, to meet. I have no idea if Ed had insurance, but I think it would be appropriate for the Doves to make one more effort to include a check with their sympathy cards.
