"In Memoriam" section

Posted: January 2, 2014

[Note from the editor:] In the following 4 sections, we remember and honor several exceptional individuals: Janet Sainer - innovator and advocate for numerous programs and policies that support grandparent caregiver families, Ed Krentzman - who helped frame and expand the FELLOWS program in Hawaii, Pat Rosini - the driving force for the Intergenerational Nutrition Greenhouse in Northumberland County, Pennsylvania, and Bob Kasey, Jr. - founder of Creative Grandparenting and Creative Mentoring in Wilmington, DE. Beyond noting their contributions as practitioners and innovators in the still-young intergenerational studies field, we acknowledge their impact as mentors and supporters for the many people they have inspired and who follow in their footsteps. On a personal note, I had the great pleasure of getting to know Janet and Ed. Their life stories provide resounding support for the idea that even one individual can truly make a difference!!
