We dedicate this issue of "The Braille Forum" to the memory of Anne Fesh, who passed away on August 23. There is an empty space in our office and a sadness in our hearts that will be impossible to fill or to heal. We may find others who will fix our computers, install our software, answer our phones, hang posters and photos on our walls, update our resource lists, ease the stress for folks waiting in line to register at ACB conventions, and be there for countless blind and visually impaired men and women who call seeking answers and hope. But none of those "replacements" will be Anne whose quiet humility and non-judgmental compassion and empathy for others are the standard against which all who attempt to fill the void will be forever judged.
Anne, we miss you. In friendship and sadness, and with gratitude, we dedicate this issue of ACB's "Braille Forum" to you.
The American Council of the Blind strives to increase the independence, security, equality of opportunity, and to improve quality of life for all blind and visually impaired people.
