December 03, 2010 "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" - Kathy Shaheen (Downingtown, PA)
