I met Woody in the best group of friends one could ask for at MSU in the 70’s. Woody was a standout with her gracious acceptance of all; she made me feel so welcome. Later I moved to Traverse City, and Woody did my taxes. What a delight that was! She always made me laugh. I am heartbroken to hear of Woody’s passing. Love to Snipe. Let’s get together in a socially distant manner.
