Learnings

In 2013, losing her battle with ovarian cancer, Louise set about preserving her tapes, books, films and articles, and making them available to the public. This treasure trove can be found at louisediamond.com. Louise said once, “My life has been a shower of blessings,” but her biggest dream was to drink 12 bottles of wine she bought in 1994 from Cyprus with friends on the occasion of the envisioned reunification.
