Meri je zajedno sa mužem Robertom Bobom Guldingom (Robert Bob Goulding, preminuo 1993) stvorila jednu od nauticajnijih škola transakcione analize, TERAPIJU NOVOM ODLUKOM (Redecision therapy).
Meri je bila velika inspiracija generacijama psihoterapeuta. Zajedno sa Bobom je pre dvadesetak godina održala petodnevnu TA radionicu u tadašnjoj psihijatrijskoj klinici na Avali.

I write this time to send you Mary's good-bye letter. You will find it
typed below and in her own hand in the attachment. She wrote it on Friday the 6th
of December and worked very hard on it during the day.
It was the darndest thing! On Saturday, November 30th, I was to go to the
thoroughbred races with step-daughter Kathleen Callahan, but woke up very
tired. I stayed home on Saturday and Sunday. On Monday I had a new sensation,
difficulty breathing, so I dressed in my flashy pink jeans and my lavender
sweatshirt from my daughter Claudia and called my favorite cab driver, "Maybe I
should go to Alta Bates". He asked why and I told him I was having trouble
breathing. He said "Unlock your front door. I'm calling you an ambulance." I'd
been admitted one other time for the birth of my son, David, sixty years ago.
It turned out I had congestive heart failure, a heart attack on Saturday and
one on Monday. Seems diabetic Women are prone to silent heart attacks. I
have pneumonia in both lungs and pulmonary edema which is getting worse. Long
explanation of why I am dying. I feel strangely calm as I drift in spite of
medicine and a constantly needed oxygen mask. I know the pain of saying
good-bye to the living. As an atheist moving into nothingness, there is no pain. No
matter when I died there would be places left to visit and beauty still to
enjoy. I cannot imagine a better life than I have had – so much of it
stimulated by ITAA.
Many thanks and much much love to all of you,
