126dect98 This month's cover
April 2008

This month's issue contains a tribute to Nancy V. Becker, a beloved teacher, advocate, community leader, softball champ, and friend. She was associated with Northeastern University's ITP and ASL programs, but her influence extended far beyond Boston. Despite progressively debilitating multiple sclerosis, which immobilized her bosy but not her spirit, NVB, as she was known, insisted on living life to the fullest—mentoring, encouraging, and laughing. She died on Valentine's Day, her favorite holiday, surrounded by friends and family. She will not be forgotten.
