We were so sorry to read of Lavada's passing. She & I were young & expecting our first children, so shared our thoughts & worries. Later it was play dates with our 2 little ones. We also had many good times in the early Autopac days where both our husbands worked. Our Deepest Sympathy Mirlin & family.
