Gennady, thank you for capturing the afternoon. I want to add one more bit: I was one of the last to leave the reception at Lucie Stern.

This plus the photo montage on television monitors captured my full attention, and I just wanted to absorb them and didn't need to talk to a lot of wonderful people who were there. Hmmmm, "wonderful people" was one of Mary Davey's favorite phrases. You can bet Gary and Mary are organizing heaven!
