Babe Didrikson was one of the few people I most admired in the world. I truly think she was an awesome and wonderful person and a person to be admired. We lost an American icon much too early when she passed. I only hope that when it's my turn to go to Heaven, I will finally be able to meet this remarkable woman that I have admired for so much of my life. Thank you for all of these remarkable postings and information. I love them!
