It is difficult for me to do much writing these days, so soon after Gretta has passed away. I do like sharing memories of her, especially that relate to her skating.
I am sharing this post of three pictures of Gretta during her 2003 Adult National Competition in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The pictures were sent to me from an architect and adult skater, Jesse Miguel. These three photos are some of the best skating pictures that exist of Margretta, and they came from a fellow skater, not a professional photographer.

Gretta smiles with a look of pure happiness.
