Passing of Maman Georgette

It is with great sadness that I share the news of the passing from this world of Maman Georgette – a wonderful woman, mother, grandmother, and master weaver. I described her in my chapter about “Love and Weaving” in Glimpses through the Forest, although my words do not do her justice. Maman Georgette had an important impact on me and my time in Gabon, and she will be truly missed. Please join me in sending thoughts and prayers to her family in Gamba and Sette Cama. Diboti.
