Letter: A memorable Pepi encounter

Pepi was out for a walk one afternoon when I was in Vail for a few days last May. I went up just to say hello and mentioned a mutual friend of ours, Frank Snyder, who built Stratton Mountain in Vermont.  Pepi roared back, as if it were yesterday: “I won a race at Stratton!” and he reached out to shake my hand. As I looked into his eyes and felt the warmth of his strong grasp, I smiled back thinking, WOW!
