Lila's adage was: "Love is multiplied, never divided." Lila was a remarkable woman. She was an editor, teacher, advocate, wife, mother, stepmother, grandmother, great-grandmother and dear friend to so many. From New York to Arizona and beyond she touched so many lives. We celebrate her, we miss her and we love her. JN
