RIP Eleanor, you will always be one of my role models and an inspiration.
And while I’m sad for you to go, I am tremendously grateful for the 91 years we were privileged to have your grace and beauty on this earth.
We all miss and cherish you.
"Marilyn really cared about learning. The day before [the dinner party at the Lawfords with RFK], Marilyn told me, "I want to be in touch, Pat- I want to really know what’s going on in the country." She was especially concerned about civil rights- she really cared about that. She had a list of questions prepared. When the press reported that Bobby was talking to her more than anyone else, that’s what they meant. I saw the questions and I knew what they were talking about. She identified with all the people who were denied civil rights."
