I met Dolores Prida shortly after I joined Latina as associate editor, in 2004. She worked mostly from home but had a cubicle in our Times Square office, and she would come in about once a week, usually unannounced, to work and catch up with everyone. I was one of the many young Latinas who read her column in the magazine religiously and wondered what the woman behind the witty and wise advice would be like in person.

We lost one of the great ones today.
Dolores Prida, legendary playwright, columnist and Latina trailblazer, died this morning at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City.
The author of Latina's "Dolores Dice" column, and one of the founding members of the magazine, Dolores was a part of our Latina family and our hearts are heavy this morning as we report the news of her passing.
