Dear Crippen family, I am a former colleague of Pete's from Devon Prep. Although I never met Fran, I do recall, quite vividly, speaking with Pete several times about his children and their accomplishments. The pride and joy in his face and voice as he spoke to me about all of his children was touching to me then, and is even more significant and meaningful now. I hope that your family can draw upon those joyful memories as you go through this most difficult and painful time. My most sincere condolences to all in your family. Kathy Shaheen

My heart and prayers go out to the Crippen Family for the loss of your son. I was shocked and deeply sadened by the loss of Fran he had a talent like no other I admired his dedication and his talent! Fran was trully a aspiration to all the swimmers young and old and a great role model for future swimmers to come! I did not know him personnally but I watched him from the tv screen and I applauded his achievements when he won in his competitions! He will be trully Missed with his humble spirit! I believe that Heaven is rejoicing, an Angel gone but not Forgotten!

So sad - my heart goes out to the Crippen family. Watched Fran swim when he came to Ft. Myers. He will be missed. Have spent many years working with USA Swimming and he was one of my favorite swimmers to follow.

We send our deepest condolences to the Crippen Family and all of Fran's friends worldwide, especially his family at Germantown Academy. Fran was a true Olympian in every sense of the word. He will never be forgotten; his legacy will live on. Our deepest sympathy to all of Fran's family and friends.

He was an angel among us -- anyone who met him knew that. He spread more goodness and light in his short life than most do in a long lifetime.

Now he's an angel above us.
