[Dear Miss Snell,]

[It is with a great deal of gratitude that I write this letter. I am so appreciative of you and Ursinus and I realize that I can not possibly thank you enough. Certainly a letter can not say it all.]

[It is hard to think of Ursinus and not think of you doing the instructing and coaching. It will certainly be a difficult task for anyone to attempt to fill your shoes.]

[Some of my fondest memories are those days that I spent on the playing fields of "U.C." receiving, I feel, the best instruction available.]

[I hope that this does not appear overly sentimental but these are my most sincere feelings. I am just sorry that I am unable to take part in paying tribute to you at your dinner.]

[I wish you the very best and hope that you continue to stay involved with Ursinus, because it wouldn't be the same without you.]

[Most sincerely,]

[Carol Bentley Rafter ('61)]
