My good friend and colleague, and a giant of the boating world, has passed at age 90. I will miss her terribly. The entire boating community owes her a large debt of gratitude for her significant contributions to boating safety. She is not only one of the most remarkable women I have met in my lifetime, she is one of the most remarkable persons I have had the privilege to know and work with. God Bless her and may she rest in peace knowing the vital contributions she has made to her fellow man.
