To Coach Bartow's Family,
Please accept my condolences for the loss of your husband, father, and grandfather. I was a member of the 1973 Women's Basketball Team that toured China with Coach Bartow's Mens Team, and I just read about his passing. I will always remember him as member of our entourage and how friendly and personable he was.

May God bless this remaining family. I remember Ruth and her sons from the time she was teaching at TJ in Valparaiso. She and Gene participated in our staff parties and Murry was in my second grade class. What a great family. We followed news of the family and even sent a gift of familiar flowers.

I was just a blip on Gene's radar when he was assistant coach to Art Gallon at UC Santa Barbara in '59 and '6o. He and his family lived in a tract home in El Encanto Heights in what is now Goleta. I was what is now called Sports Information Director at UCSB. I will always remember Gene as a real gentleman and a "people person." I want his family to know that Jerry Harwin who founded the Hoop Club at UCSB is still going strong at age 101 and attends all Gaucho women's and men's basketball games.

Dearest Ruth,
I still have your Tylenol in my pocket book you gave me the day Gene had the "Gamma Knife" done so early in the morning. I don' t know if you remember me (Connie) and my husband Larry, but our deepest sympathy goes out to you and your family. I realllly hope we can stay in touch, because I really liked both of you very much for the moment we met.
Our deepest Sympathy
Larry and Connie
