All friends, allies, and associates of the late Helen Pinto, aka the Good Countess, Comrade Saint Aidan ni Leir, Patron Saint of Unpopular Causes and Answer Countess, are encouraged to hold such celebrations of her life as they deem appropriate. A mild mannered computer programmer by day, in the evenings and on weekends she was transformed into Aidan ~ musician, maker, teacher of all things, and mentor. She was a raconteur of the highest order. She shared, gave, noodged, prodded, encouraged, and sometimes shouted in an attempt to bring people to their better selves. According to her wishes, her ashes will soon reside as part of a reef ball. These are designed artificial reefs that are used to restore coral reefs around the world.
So, get together, tell stories, and enjoy each other’s company. And, if you think to raise a glass, she was partial to Bailey’s Irish Crème or Jameson’s – good “daughter of the old sod” that she was.
