Hello all,


I am sorry to tell you that Ruth Frech, the mother of Karen Herstein, died
on Friday, July 31. Ruth was a member of the Parents' Division and began
attending national and state conventions in 1997. She lived a long and
fruitful life, making it to age 93. Although there is no memorial service,
the family requests that those who wish to honor Ruth's memory make a
contribution to the NFBMD. May she rest in peace.

The National Federation of the Blind of Maryland knows that blindness is not
the characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise the
expectations of blind people, because low expectations create obstacles
between blind people and our dreams. You can live the life you want;
blindness is not what holds you back.
