Both Chrissie and I have sent our condolences to Bob re Mae, but in view of
all the public support given on Cryonet we feel we want to add out names to

I never met her, but knew her by correspondence first as Mae Junod, editor
of The Immortalist which publishes my column Comments from Cornwall. Her
editing was sometimes necessary, especially in the early editions where my
views were as outlandish to the cryonics movement as that movement is to the
rest of the world. Fortunately she persisted in allowing most of the column
to proceed to print and guided it to the form it has today. Chrissie met her
as Mae Ettinger at their home in Phoenix, as described in Longevity Report
66, July 1998.

Chrissie writes:
How sorry I was to know that Mae has had to make her journey to Michigan. I
have such
good memories of the time I was able to shared with her and Bob. Getting to
know them both
has been a pleasure and privilege and meant a lot to me. Mae was a lovely
lady and showed
me such kindness and friendliness when we met.
I'm sure we can all share Bob's sense of loss. I hope it will help to know
his friends and
admirers are thinking of him. I am certain that everyone will want to offer
support in whatever
way we can.

I look forward to us all meeting again, someday in the future.

Chrissie de Rivaz.
Sincerely, John de Rivaz
