In Memoriam

Peter Rudolph passed away on Friday Novembere 29 from septecimia at age 77.   Peter was born in New York City, and lived in the desert about 15 years.  He is survived by his wife Rochelle, son Jason and two grandchildren.  He will be missed by his many friends and partners.

Jim Matthewslong-time sanctioned duplicate bridge competitor and familiar face in Unit 533 has passed away. Jim's competitive spirit was coupled with a mutual respect for every opponent and a wry sense of humor. Jim favorite line was, "don't make six partner," as he tabled the dummy. His deviled eggs were legendary. Jim is survived by his wife, Charlene.
