A Special Person

As we have been preparing to move our office, we have been going through a lot of files and pictures. While going through pictures, we found several wonderful pictures of Fanny Talbot. As most of you know, Miss Fanny passed away this past August after a long and painful struggle with ALS. We were grateful to be able to present at a memorial service held at Our Lady of Monserrate in Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, NY on September 19th. It was a wonderful celebration of her life and showed what an amazing woman she was. Her commitment to her neighborhood, especially the children, has been an inspiration to many.

The pictures below are from the Passionist Presence Dinner in 2005 where Fanny received the "St. Paul of the Cross Award" for her service in Bedford Stuyvesant. In addition to Fanny, the four founding members of TGIA (Corinthia, Luisa, Tiffany and Marilyn) came to the dinner to show their appreciation for all that Fanny did for their community.
