a wonderful party! It was great to see everyone. We also met
the woman (Licia Hahn) who coached Val for CNN (we
were told you were the fairy godmother/father of that!). I
also met Licia's mother, Lily, and kept thinking I knew those
cheekbones from somewhere. Eventually she was introduced as
Lily Hahn, and I said, 'I had a wonderful French teacher
named Mme Hahn...' Shrieks and hugs all around! She remembers
me, and where we lived, and all my classmates at Sacred Heart.
We're having lunch very soon. The magic of K&A at work
yet again! Your toasts to Gael Greene and André
Soltner were so well done —
so relaxed, gracious, and eloquent. Many, many congratulations."
