TESTIMONIALS
A happier note I see is this week's Indiana Lawyer where you are celebrated for obtaining the bronze in the shot put in your age group. I did not realize that you previously tried out for the Olympics and the stated age group for this bronze must be a misprint as I pictured you not much older than myself. Congratulations for your achievement and best wishes.
