Ms. Verdon passed away in her sleep yesterday at her daughters home in Vermont. At this point I am speechless, only to say there will never be another dancer like her and her legacy will not be forgotten. <P>DH

That's a beautiful memorial from you, David. I am sure she will be missed by many, many people.
