Fond Memories Remain

A sweet goodbye to a fellow runner at the end of Jim Hage's column "[1] in the Washington Post a few days ago:

TRUE BLUE: Top age-group competitor Ray Blue, 84, of Oxon Hill, died Nov. 10 after a long illness. Unable to compete in recent years, Blue volunteered at races. Always an iconoclast, Blue requested that there be no obituary, no funeral and no tears. Fond memories remain.
