On 26th September 2016, we had informed you all with great sorrow of the demise of our dear friend from Iowa, Professor Jo Eland. A couple of days ago, we received into our bank account Jo’s handsome gift to Pallium India that she had bequeathed in her will.

We cannot find the right words to express how we feel. Happy about the money, of course, which will help so many of our patients and support our activities, but how do we describe the love that came with it, the goodwill, the strength that she infuses into us, and such precious memories she has given us!

Thank you, Inez Dawes (Jo’s sister) and thank you, Dr Ann Broderick. Both of you had to go through a lot of trouble and frustration with the bureaucratic wrangles, even when struggling with your grief.

Dear Jo, we don’t know how to celebrate you. We have no doubt that you would have wanted us to celebrate. Inez suggests an ice cream together. We can see you smiling at the thought!

You are with us, dear friend.
