In a comment on this blog almost two months after his mother's death, Kathryn "Haveagood" Porter's son Ralph writes about what Vassar meant to his mother.
"I write this tears are in my eyes," says Ralph. "My mom loved working at Vassar and she loved all the students and people she met there. Believe me, she talked about you all with great love and respect. Thanks to the big group of Vassar employees that showed at her wake. You will never know how good that made me feel. Thank you."
