I wish I could describe to you how wonderful Petra Mayer was. I can’t do it because–I knew no one like her. She became my daughter’s best friend in seventh grade, and then ever after. She was an explosion of creativity in everything from license plates (her green car was “SPEEDLIME) to baking glazed Christmas cookies in the shape of medieval knights, to drawing, to singing. With her parents, she hosted a truly glorious Christmas carol-singing party full of lovely voices, none better than hers. Twitter is full of tributes from her NPR colleagues and this obituary has some of the best. – Don
