Sunday was another sunny day. We checked out of our hotel, dropped our bags off at Weigel Hall and went to breakfast under the tent outside of Mershon. The final session began with the Track recognition awards. The winning commercial from each track was played and they were awesome. I am biased but I think our pink track was the loudest!
The closing session was a panel discussion with Dr Bernadine Healy, Dr Sanjay Gupta and Dr. Gordon Gee. Sadly, Dr Gee lost his son-in-law in an accident in PA during the Summit. He shared with us a moving description of how his son-in-law died in a "magnificent way". ( My condolences to the Gee family.)
As the event ended and the lights came on after survivors spoke on stage I felt sad. Sad to leave my friends from the 2006 summit. Sad thinking about Holly ( Cape Cod) who was at my table in 2006 and was no longer with us. Sad that Dr Pausch had died. Sad to have to say goodbye to my new friends.
