Daisy Aldan died a couple of days after Anaïs’s birthday.. A  treasured New York friend of Anaïs, readers of this site can read her  chapter in the book Celebration  (Magic Circle Press: Valerie Harms and Adele Aldridge) available on our site.


Although today is a sad day hearing about her death, this writer remembers fondly many daisy days with Aldan. Meeting her at Rye, New York and having a wonderful correspondence with her for a number of years.
