Dame Elisabeth Murdoch gave so much throughout her very long lifetime and I'd like to publicly acknowledge her great gift to A for Attitude Productions.
I remember thinking as I wrote Attitude in Action that it would be wonderful to have a couple of prominent Aussies to provide testimonials for the back cover.
To my delight I found that Dame Elisabeth was listed in the local phone book and answered her own phone. She was 95 years of age at the time, still with a hectic schedule, but on hearing a quick synopsis, immediately agreed to read my manuscript.
I delivered the draft file to Cruden Farm later that day. Within a week, her beautiful handwritten note of validation arrived in the mail.
Thank you Dame Elisabeth for, above all else, your generosity of spirit! You were a truly great Australian with an amazing attitude and will be sorely missed.
