Maya Angelou’s death: We’ve lost an amazing writer and human being

After reading about Maya Angelou’s passing, I could not help but tear up [“Maya Angelou, writer of many talents, dies at 86,” Obituaries, May 28].

The world has certainly lost an amazing writer and human being. A quote she stated that I can so vividly remember and apply to daily life is: “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

It is such a terrible loss for the literary world. She was a truly gifted and amazing woman. I was truly able to understand the meaning behind so many of her wonderful and beautifully written masterpieces.

Rashmi G. Elera, Seattle
