We were already emotionally drained after listening to Robert & Robin, but then came the beautiful tributes to Drs. Skeffington & Getman, followed by the Awards to Drs. Tannen (presented by Dr. Gallaway) & Harris (presented by Dr. Bateman).  What a wonderful afternoon to help cap a wonderful meeting!
