My deepest sympathy to the family of Erik Karklins.I witnessed his fighting spirit and love for the game of chess,as he did battle in the Chicago Open at age 95!I read in an article in "Chesslife"about him that he "loved the beauty of the game" and that is why he had kept on playing all these years.I feel the same way.Rest in peace Mr.Karklins,you are an inspiration to chess players and anyone else who commits to their passion for a lifetime.Thankyou.
