I first met Bette at the premiere of The Spirit in Architecture at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles. I was stunned by the beauty of the film, and the smart way that Bette had presented the buildings, with my father walking around them and talking. Bette was enthusiastic and smiling and I don't know if I ever saw my father happier. Bette, you gave such a gift to my often-bitter father! The last time I saw Bette was at the premiere of the US premiere of the 25th anniversary version of the film, at the Fine Arts Theatre in Beverly Hills. She looked beautiful, radiant. I was lifted up just by seeing her with her sister, with Steve, with others who loved her. Over the years we met many times, mainly to discuss screenings and lectures that Bette was happy to give. She often brought the young Jacob with her. We were privileged to have known her, to have felt her love.

In loving memory of my dear friend Bette. You fought the battle hard and continued living your life with grace and dignity! Your creativeness, brilliance and love will always be remembered and honored. Forever in my heart my sweet Bette...my muse, a best friend and a sister to me! Blessings to Steve, Jacob and the Cohen and Zeitzew families.

Will not forget the warm hugs and hellos. We worry about our carbon footprint. You left a golden one. Condolences to all the Zeitzews, Cohens and the many many MANY others, outside the family circle, who mourn.
