Catherine Kasper,
my Co-Editor at American Letters & Commentary for over 10 years (and my partner in all things for over 23 years) died in April 2017 after a lengthy battle with cancer. Her intelligence, her wit and humor, her honesty and compassion, were driving forces for AL&C. She is dearly missed.
