I remember Teresa, who I agree had a great personality, but did not know 
that she was murdered. What a shame. I'm sorry that Rita lost her friend in 
such a terrible manner.

NFB of Washington,

There is a book on Bard That mentions the NFB of Washington and, our former 
scholarship chairperson,  Rita Szantay.  The book is:

While the city slept: a love lost to violence and a young man's descent into 
Sanders, Eli. Reading time: 9 hours, 50 minutes.
Read by Rene Ruiz.

True Crime

A reporter expands upon his 2009 Pulitzer Prize-winning coverage of a 
Seattle murder and the system that failed to act on the signs of mental 
illness. When the lives of lovers Teresa Butz and Jennifer Hopper intersect 
with that of young Isaiah Kalebu, all three paths are forever altered. 
Unrated. Commercial audiobook. 2016.

Some of you will remember Teresa Butz, a sighted woman who came to one of 
our state conventions in Vancouver.  Scott LaBarre was the national 
representative.  Some of us danced in the hotel's bar, including Teresa.

Teresa also came to at least one of the Seattle Chapter's summer parties at 
my house.  I remember her as a forthright and fun person.

After Teresa was murdered in Seattle in 2009, Rita attended her memorial 
service and spoke about their mutual love of baseball.
I thought some of you might be interested in Mr. Sanders' book as it talks 
about Teresa's adventurous life.
