MILESTONES Trustee emeritus George Pardee, who served on the board of trustees from 1977 to 1997, passed away in February. During his 20 years on the board, he served as a member of the University Relations committee, finance committee, new age campaign executive commit- tee, committee on trustees, executive committee and the capital executive committee. Mr. Pardee also was a life- time leadership donor and was a member of USD's 50th anniversary honorary committee. Rex Wipff, uncle of Lisa Wipff, an executive assistant in student accounts, passed away Feb. 29. I would like to express my deep thanks to everyone at USO for their love and caring for my best friend, Nancy Olson, during her illness and in the hours of her death. Thank you for the flowers, notes, cards and hours spent at her bedside. Thanks for the meals that were fixed for her and the birthday parties. I could go on and on about the laughter, comfort and support you gave, as well all the special things - big and little - including the beautiful service, Mass and reception in her honor. I will never forget all of you. A Note of Gratitude To my family at USO,
