Graciela Rodriguez († 2012)
Dr. Graciela Rodriguez, a member of Mexican Society of Behavioral Medicine and also a past member of ISBM Board, suddenly passed away on July 5th, 2012 (Thursday). The ISBM would like to express a sincere condolence to her passing away, with deep appreciation to her contribution to the Society.
Maria Kopp (1942 - 2012)
Maria passed away all of a sudden, in her sleep, unexpectedly – as if she had had no time to hesitate about the issue of death, the natural part of life. She had been characterised by an amazingly abundant energy until the very last day of her life. There is such vast emptiness due to her departure that those who are left behind can hardly grasp. Two months ago we celebrated her 70th birthday anniversary in the frame of a scientific day organised in her honour at the Semmelweis University. Age had no importance in her case, she lived and talked with the vigour of a young scientist at the beginning of her career. She was ageless and indestructible – yet destiny had a final say.
