In appreciation: Evan Rashkoff

I’ve spent the better part of the past year missing Evan and trying to figure out how to thank many people for many kindnesses. When he died Oct. 24 last year I could not have anticipated how the support of this community would make such a difference in my life. I cannot find words that adequately convey my gratitude, but I will now belatedly try.
