We met in grade school.  Everyone always emphasized her looks but she was one smart cookie and a sweet person.  Always popular but sometimes shy, I think of Jodie often when remembering school.

My best memories of Jodi were made on the West School playground grades 4-6 where we played Keep-Away before classes.   Jodi was the fastest most evasive girl on the field.  All of us loved chasing her around.

In 1961 my family moved to New Canaan. I was in grade 6 and just turning 11 but young for my age at that point. My older brother, Bruce Rose, was in High School and seemed much older than me. I was surprised to find Jodie in "my" class since she was part of Bruce's inner circle, connected to Bruce Gilman particularly. I am sad to see she is gone. She seemed much older and wiser than me when we met, but we really cuddled up like sisters, we both still sucked our thumbs sometimes, secretly. I admired her intelligence and her elegance and appreciated her sweetness to me. I think we were last in touch in 1983 when Bruce passed away. I wanted her to know and so I managed to find her... She had been part of what Bruce called "The Clan." We left New Canaan in 1965. Bruce and I were torn up to leave. We had moved all the time as kids, and had settled and connected the way you do at that age. Leaving was horrible, traumatic even. I've been trying to write about it and that's how I wound up on this site. I wonder too about Steve Alexander, Paul Hertzberg, Jack Johannson, Marion Anderson...some of Bruce's other close friends from those days.
