A dedication: To our beloved uncle Simon, recently passed, who filled my childhood with laughter. Your playful sense of mischievousness and ready smile will live on in our memory. I thought of you during the race today, and my heart was filled with joy.
Uncle Simon played many roles: a loving husband, patrician father, doting grandfather, friend to many far and wide, physician-healer to the sick and frail. He will be deeply missed.
