Tomas, our deepest sympathy on the death of Mary which I have just seen on the Cunningham site. It must be about 30 years since our paths crossed. However, I have very fond memories of my time doing the degree in Anthropology. Mary opened my eyes to a wider world for which I am eternally grateful. May she rest in peace. Take care Tomas.
