She was a member of the women's group af- filiated with the University of Berk- ley. She gave some lectures at the University on Icelandic culture, his- tory and language. Louise was kind to children and, "My first recollection of my cousin Louise is when she came to visit mama when we lived on the little farm in Riverton, Manitoba, and I in- sisted on going to Winnipeg with her, and she took me along and I stayed about a week with her. I was only about five or six at the time. She bought me a dress and patent leather sandals and white socks and her father bought me a doll. She was very interested and kind to children." IN REMEMBRANCE Do not stand by my grave and weep, I am not there, I did not sleep I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glint on the snow, I am the sunlight on the ripened grain I am the gentle autumn rain, When you waken in the morning hush, I am the swift uplighting rush, Of quiet birds' circled flight, I am the soft star that shines at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I'm not there I did not cry. Gudny Gudbjartson Description of character Njál He was so skilled in law that no one was considered his equal. He was a wise and prescient man. His advice was sound and benevolent, and always turned out well for those who followed it. He was a gentle man of great integrity; he remembered the past and discerned the future, and solved the problems, of any man who came to him for help. Note: From translation of Njál's Saga by Magnus Manusson and Her- mann Palsson. Njál is a very well known if not the most fascinating character in the Ice- landic Sagas. His logic of reasoning and legal strategy makes the story bearing his name, a fascinating book to read. Dónations to Betelstadur Housing Co-operative Fund - W F. & T.
