Tinasmom,

So sad. She was a great gift to the world. Thank you so much for the information. The link seems to be broken, but I found the info on a couple other sites. Hope you don't mind if I share them..

That really is sad: she was obviously capable of achieving a lot, evidently wasn't letting her condition, and had her whole life in front of her. She could have been a really positive role model for young people with epilepsy too (who especially tend to be affected by the negative stigma associated with it). I fear she's now going to be soon forgotten, as another small entry in the long list of history's "might-have-beens" . Such a shame...

I fixed the link in the OP. She sounds like a bright person.
