Good-bye Celeste, My good friend Celeste LeWitt passed away recently and I do miss her terribly as I miss so many great people I have known through my work. However, Celeste will be remembered through a program she helped me start along with Phyllis and Sy Lappen. Life is short and we must look to Celeste as the model to make the most of it.
