This last week was a day to catch up with old friends, many of which were connected to Olivier Sanche. One of the small world stories a friend told me is their move to SF Bay Area has gone well and his son has taken up Polo. When I hear polo, I think of water polo, not the equestrian sport of polo. So, the first time I heard his story I missed the point.
Traveling to a polo match his wife and son gave a ride to another family (mother and daughter). Traveling in the car the small talk came up what does your husband do, he works on data centers. The single mom said oh that’s what my husband did until he passed away. Oh, so sorry to hear. What was his name? Olivier Sanche. OMG, your husband was Olivier, my husband knew him and was shocked by the news.
This last week I caught up with Olivier Sanche’s widow, Karine. Karine told her story of meeting the unnamed data center executive who knew Olivier, and I gave more background on him and how he was a good friend of Olivier and I know the two of them connected well.
Asking about how her daughter is doing Emilie, she is doing so well in school and she is so tall. How tall? 5’ 8 1/2” and she’ll be 13 in Sept one week away from my daughter who will also be 13 and is maybe 4’ 10”. Olivier and I had talked about one of these days our girls meeting each other, and one of these days hopefully they will.
Here are some pictures of Emilie playing Polo.
