Bob, Kathy, John and families, Sending my condolences to all of you. Mrs Schild was my Cross country coach at Seneca East. I truly loved and respected her. I remember that I was on the team her first year of coaching, I graduated in 1976, and she admitted to us that she didn’t know much about cc but someone told her to say something profound to us before our first meet. She couldn’t think of anything to say so profound became our pre run word!! She was such a wonderful person. Although we didn’t keep in touch I thought of her often. Blessings to all of you and 74 years of marriage is amazing! With love,
