I would really like to thank Tonya Strickland for writing a wonderful article in memory of Gene Lenz, former Cal Poly swimmer and Olympian. I have known Gene for the last four years and I felt honored to have met such a wonderful and caring man who put so much of his heart into helping others.

I think too often we forget to thank those we appreciate while they are here. Gene was a true role model not only for Cal Poly athletes, but also for all Cal Poly students. Ms. Strickland, thank you for truly capturing the essence of who Gene was.
