So sad to find that 31-year-old Rita Szarvas was on the doomed Flight 447 with her 7-year-old son, Andras. Rita was a conductor at the Peto Institute of Conductive Education in Budapest and a visiting conductor to the Conductive Learning Center (CLC) in Grand Rapids, where my son spent hours improving his mobility.

As my bereaved friend, CLC director Andrea Benyovszky and I spoke yesterday, we were both again reminded of how quickly our loved ones and dearest friends can be gone. 
Make time for them.
