Tribute to Anne Nicol Gaylor

That Chicago story, carried around the country, brought us a new member: Ruth Hurmence Green, who became a dear friend. Anne raised money to publish Ruth's wonderfully useful book, The Born Again Skeptic's Guide to the Bible, in 1979. In July 1981, Ruth, suffering from round 3 of cancer, this one terminal, took control of her own death with painkillers.

Ruth sent many of her friends goodbye letters, including a very touching letter to my mother, telling her: "Freedom From must grow and prosper. Freedom depends on freethinkers." You'll find that motto up at our website.
