    You’re all in my heart. I wish I could be there. She was a swimmer, and among other things, she taught me how to refine my ‘crawl’, Whenever I swim laps using the crawl (something I love to do), I usually think of her. Like you, I have many good memories, which I will treasure. I’m grateful she and I were able to see each other, when I was back in July. Much love, Cathy
