I’ve got the Olympics on in the background as I putter around online. Beach volleyball is on. Misty May, the dominant player in the sport, apparently, is playing. The commentators are commenting. Her father, Butch, played volleyball in the '68 Olympics, but Misty’s main mentor was her mother, another volleyballer. Her mother died four years ago. Misty has her mother’s initial’s tattooed on her back.
And Misty brought some of her mother’s ashes (her mother was cremated, obviously) with her to the Olympics.
