I didn't know Mr. Chevalier. Not directly. I have been keeping is prayer bracelet for the past year. Praying for him and his family everynight. Reading the words his loved ones posted for him meant a lot to me. I pray for you all. And I know that wherever Swede is today, he is looking down at you all with love.
I went to college with Swede. He was a close friend of my husband George. It is difficult to describe what a magnificent human being he was. Vibrant, passionate, funny, and so incredibly smart. There are so many who truly love and admire him still. I like to remember him on that summer day in 1997 when we went waterskiing on Lake Cayuga with a bunch of our friends. Swede kicked off his ski mid-way and went slalom - he was an awesome skiier. We skiied until the sun went down. He was so beautiful and young and strong and happy. Just hanging out with his girlfriend Melissa, and a bunch of his friends, enjoying the day. I will always remember that.
I taught Swede at RCDS in the 1980's.
