Earlier today we celebrated the life of our dear friend and colleague Ranee Palone Flynn who passed away earlier this year. A small gathering of friends and family reminisced about treasured memories and happy times with Ranee.

Ranee was the life and soul of our organization; she coined the name, designed the logo and managed the web site for thewomen.org. Ranee was also the creator of our skin care line, LOVE LIFE skin care, dedicated to cancer patients going through chemo and radiation therapy. Her creativity extended far beyond these projects as Ranee was first and foremost a prolific and very talented photographer and author. She has had multiple exhibits, she was featured on the New York Times and received numerous awards for her photography. Ranee faced her illness resolutely with no trace of self-pity. She will be forever missed!

On a personal note Ranee was a dear friend; she loved food, decorating, fashion and above all she loved life. Our countless hours of conversation and outings will be with me and give comfort as I come to grips with this surreal loss.

Please join the members of our organization as we pay our respects and condolences to her family: her husband John, and her two children Esme and Julian.
