She displayed the skill to find comedy and life, as well as compassion within each and every persona she portrayed… She performed during an era when the prevailing influence was the male-dominated society, and she coped with grace and affection… Each time I encountered her — our paths crossed thrice — I cried tears in an manner that was embarrassing enough for me to retreat."
