A Journey from Past, Present, to Future
Elaine Ekart-De Smedt, widow of Olivier De Smedt ’94, shares her experience visiting Admiral Farragut Academy for the first time.
I set foot on St. Petersburg, Florida soil for the first time on the seventh anniversary of my husband, Olivier De Smedt ‘94’s passing. Serendipity, fate, kismet, divine intervention? It could have been any one of those things or more, but thanks to many “signs”, I feel in my heart and soul that it has been my husband, Olivier, who has been shepherding and guiding me and setting up opportunities and setting my personal journey into motion.
