Michael Updike writes, “I received a cold call from an admirer of my father’s tonight. She had hoped to read this poem to my father but his demise put an end to that. So reading it to me was the bridesmaid’s option.” Mathilde Duffy is an artist who works and teaches art classes in the greater Boston area.
Thank you for your contribution to Updike’s memory. Did you have personal contact with him? I am compiling a collection of remembrances of Updike by those who had personal contact.
