Sad news that Kay Ryan's partner Carol Adair has passed away.

from the obituary:
" . . . She met her life partner, Kay Ryan, in 1977 while both were working in the academics department at San Quentin. Carol was a teacher by nature. Teaching was her consuming art and genius. She understood how to bring out the best in her students and in all who knew her."

I don't know anything about Kay Rayn's personal life, but I enjoy a lot of her little things in POETRY magazine. This is a sad sad day.
