My #1 swimming fan... my dear Aunt Marna... passed away last night in her sleep! She was the most wonderful... caring... sweetest person I ever had in my life.
One summer... as her and my Uncle Sidney were passing through Maryland on their way back to or from New Jersey... they stopped at the Calverton Swim Club to suprise Julie and I. What a suprise it was! We had swim practice and they decided to stick around to watch it. Well... Aunt Marna made it seem more like a swim meet. She was sitting under the gazebo and was cheering loudly as Julie or I would swim toward the deep end of the 50 meter pool. It was awesome... awesome I tell ya! Something that sticks in my memory anytime I am swimming in long course pool.
Aunt Marna you will be missed so much... but we'll always remember you and keep you in our hearts. Lots of Love to you!
More to come...
