  7. My deepest sympathies to Lani and her family. My memories of Mrs. Paz never fail to bring a smile! I remember at the rehearsal dinner for Lani\’s first wedding, Mrs. Paz getting a little tipsy and repeatedly (and each time more fervently) asking..”Daughter…am I embarassing you???!!!” And the impromptu full Asian meal she made in Lani\’s kitchen for all of the wedding guests who showed up at Lani\’s house after the wedding and just wouldn\’t leave! A lovely, elegant woman whose brilliance and class shines through in her children…. Caryn
