My dog, Rosie, and I visited Mrs. Kincaid regularly over the last several years and she was very special to us. Our many wonderful conversations covered a vast variety of topics. I always left feeling admiration and awe for her depth of knowledge, courage and spirit. I will dearly miss her wisdom, intellect and humor. I am forever grateful for the opportunity to have known her.
