Parents of athletes, including mine, provided encouragement and endless transportation. They were undoubtedly under-appreciated at the time, but subsequent tours of duty with our own kids changed our views. From Scouts to Campfire Girls plus YMCA Basketball, Little League, 6 years of 3 sport high school athletes, and summer All-Comers Meets, they contributed countless hours to my brother, sister and me. Thanks Mom and Dad
