Kudos to Steve Kotz for his excellent summation and description of Elise “Weezie” Quimby’s life. His writing is most certainly worthy of the classy lady we all knew and loved [“Elise Quimby, A Fixture In Bridgehampton, Dies At 85,” 27east.com, May 13].
Among the excellent testimonials of Weezie’s very giving life was a simple, skimmable mention of her attending St. Catherine’s School in Richmond, Virginia. That school’s motto is: “What we keep, we lose; only what we give away remains our own.”
For me, that motto sums up the ebullient Weezie I knew and what Steve Kotz and others expressed.
