Mrs. Kenneth Jernigan
Dear Mrs. Jernigan (or may I say Mary Ellen),
May I join with your friends and admirers throughout the world in sympathy at this time.
For so many years Kenneth has been at the active center of all that is best and enduring in the world of the blind. His brilliant advocacy, his philosophy, and his academic rigor have changed that world and global attitudes to blindness.
While we share the loss of a great pioneer and colleague, these are permanent achievements which endure and give courage to those of us who have had the privilege of working with Kenneth and you.
Yours sincerely, John Wilson, C.B.E.
