      There is nothing wrong with the water Strupps. People get heart attacks, cannot swim, get exhausted in the water, used to a swimming pool and the pull of the sea is too strong on their heart, etc etc etc. Stop blaming things on the water, this is just common sense!

    She was a strong ocean swimmer. Liz swam the ocean for a few miles everyday. This was a shock, tragedy and tremendous loss for all who knew and loved her. Elizabeth Potter Ulrich will be dearly missed.

    This comes as such a shock - I knew Elizabeth in Santa Barbara, and she loved the ocean very much. It's hard to believe it took her life in this way.
