She displayed the skill to discover humor and life, as well as compassion within each and every character she portrayed… She acted in an era when the prevailing influence was the male-dominated society, and she coped with elegance and affection… Each time I encountered her — our paths crossed thrice — I cried tears in an awkward that was uncomfortable enough for me to retreat."
