Mark and I are both deeply saddened to learn of the death of Jimmy Ortiz-Patiño ... Jimmy was President of the World Bridge Federation for many years and his influence on the game will be part of bridge forever. There will, we know, be many obituaries written, many words spken about this great man. But for now, we just want to say - we will miss you Jimmy.
