Message of Condolence

Since we learned of Lesley Gilb Taplin’s untimely death it has been hard for us to console ourselves for the loss of a dear friend and a great human being before anything else. This made it difficult for us all until now to share our condolences and feelings.For the many years we have known her she has always been the greatest friend of Performing Tangier, the generous, full of life, engaging and deeply humane being you can only love and appreciate having as a friend and a colleague. Her bright mind and great heart are a shining example of what humanity is about. And she was a great human being. We would like to share the grief and sorrow of her family and express to them that many of us, including her many friends in ICPS and Tangier, miss her also a great deal. May this sharing of their sorrow help them overcome their/our loss.
We are deeply saddened by our beloved friend Lesley Gilb Taplin’s loss. We will cherish the memories of the times we spent together in previous Tangier conferences, and will have the upcoming one May 20-24, 2009 in memoriam of her. May she rest in peace.

Khalid Amine
