Wrote an obituary for Masui Allen. Not sure when it will run. Got to reconnect with Allen Allen, Jason Olive and Mike Wilton. Olive wrote an extensive tribute that I will share later.

GoFundMe page still active. It was covering medical expensive and now will cover funeral and other expensive.

    USA had just lost a five-game heartbreaker to France in the VNL semifinal. They fought back so valiantly after having been down two sets. The last three sets were won by only two points, third and fourth by USA and the fifth, by France. So now USA will face Brazil in the bronze medal match.

    A day later and that’s today, Sunday, USA defeated Brazil in three sets to win the VNL bronze medal, while Russia beat France in three sets to win the VNL gold.
