To Rick & Steve, friends and fraternity brothers from long ago, my deepest condolences on the loss of your mother. I can imagine having met your mother at an NVSL swim meet in the 1970s. Rick, I have an All Star photo with the two of us on the podium, our mothers surely watching. Encouraging to read that she continued to enjoy swimming throughout her life.

My best to you and your families.
