To the Editor:

I was sad to learn of the death of Dorothy Rich ("Educator, Author Dorothy Rich Dies," Nov. 4, 2009). I want to thank your newspaper for doing such an outstanding job in her obituary of capturing the many aspects of her life. My husband and I had the pleasure of being in one of Ms. Rich’s classes at Trinity University in Washington many years ago. We have carried her insights into the importance of parents’ connection to their children’s education well into our careers. Her lessons are as true today as they were then. She will be missed.
