What started as a joyous family occasion ironically ended up being the biggest challenge of my life. Family and friends had gathered from long distances to attend a momentous 50th birthday celebration for my niece, who had defied all the odds of a life-threatening illness, while wheelchair-bound with cerebral palsy.

I know it\'s been a long time (50 years) since we have had any contact but I\'m very sorry to hear about your accident. It sounds like it was a pretty terrible crash. From your write up on Help Hope Live it looks like you have a very positive attitude as you face the challenging recovery in front of you. Want you to know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.

If you are up for a quick visit, Louise and I will be in Louisville for a wedding on April 27th and would like to stop by and say hello. Let me know if that would work for you.

Stay strong and best regards.

To my ATO little brother,
It is a shame that after five decades it took a car accident to get us to reconnect. It has been great to talk to you and email again. You and your family are going through a tough fight. I know the Rick I remember will get through this. Hopefully we will see you and Robin walking through the front door of 10 Regent St. at Homecoming this fall!

Here’s another of your ATO brothers who happened to pick up the WPI alumni news!
So sorry to hear about your accident. But I am inspired by your fight to get back. I know you will.
Fifty years and many miles between us, but still my brother.
