    To Mary’s Family and friends: Thank you for allowing my mom to be a part of your lives. She loved each of you so much and was blessed to know you. This IMovie has been a joyous and emotional experience for me, engulfing me for weeks. This is a message of love from my mom and from me to each of you. The tribute begins with mom and her twin, Bill (William), as babies in 1924 in Berwyn, Maryland. They were the last born to my grandparents, Elizabeth Faw and William Burbridge Yancey, who had already had two girls, Anne and M’ May. Mom’s father was a Colonel in the Army. Then my mom, Mary, earned Her Registered Nursing degree in 1945 from Rex Hospital School of Nursing, Raleigh, North Carolina. She was voted “The Prettiest” and a “Leader” in her graduating class. Shortly after graduation, Mary traveled to Japan with her mother, her sister Anne, and her father, who was assigned to the occupation after WW II. While in Japan, Mary met and married my father, Capt. (Pete) Henry F. Grimm Jr., in Kyoto, Japan. This tribute then follows Mary’s marriage to Pete Grimm as an army wife. They raised my older brother, Henry (Peter) and me. After twenty-seven mostly great years their marriage ended. At that time, Mary was caring for my elderly grandmother, Elizabeth Faw Yancey. Then, Mary’s life got very adventurous. Mom married Kenneth Levick, an officer in The State Department. Through Ken , Mom gained three more children: Michael (and Jamie, his wife), Linda, and Bonnie, and 4 grandchildren: Robin, Adrian, Brenda, and Ronita, as well as their families. Mary’s mother passed away and Ken retired. Mary and Ken began a ten year adventure living on “The Laughing Gull”, sailing the eastern seaboard, and traveling to The Bahamas. Each year they would take time off to go on a road-trip to visit many friends and family all over the US, on both sides of their families. After 10 years, Ken passed away. Mary traveled to visit friends and family after Ken’s passing. Mom was a passenger in a serious car accident in her late 50s and broke her back. My son, Ryan and I traveled to Roswell, New Mexico to help her recover and to take her to Virginia. Mary’s brother Bill and his wife Phyllis continued Mary’s care at their home for six months. Then, Mary purchased a house across the street from the Yanceys and enjoyed being close to many family members for several years while living there. The IMovie tribute then covers her life in Los Angeles. When she heard the news that I had twins on the way, Mary decided to move out to LA “for just one year” to help me, my husband, Bob, Ryan (3 years), and the twins, Erin and Shannon Cabeen. One year turned into twenty-six glorious, fun filled years as she took care of all the Cabeens and became close to our friends and family in LA. Living in LA brought her closer to her son, Peter, his wife, Camilla, and Mary’s other grandchildren: Kelcey, Lisa, and Peter who live in Seattle. Mary also became good friends with her former husband, Pete, and welcomed him to the house each Christmas. Pete Passed away in 2010. Mary joined an art group, eventually becoming their president. She continued her sculpture and painting throughout her time in LA. During this time Mary met Frank De May. Frank was Mary’s boyfriend for seventeen years and another grandfather to Ryan, Shannon, and Erin Cabeen. Mary and Frank experienced joyous companionship, including several exciting trips. Frank passed in 2006. My mom’s first sixty-two years were as a vagabond leading an adventurous life, moving often and sailing from place to place. Her twenty-six years, in one house, in one city, with one family, was a new experience for her. Many family and friends traveled here to LA to visit her over the years. We were so blessed to have her light all around us, attracting those who loved her. My mom, Mary Yancey Levick will always be with me and with those that she loved… She had the time of her life. With much love to all of my mother’s family and friends, Cecile Elizabeth Grimm-Cabeen Mary Yancey Levick: 1924 – 2014 Her ashes were put into the tide pools at Pelican Cove, Palos Verdes, California on July 20, 2014 by her loved ones.

          In this LEVICK Daily video interview, we discuss global regulatory cooperation with Jonathan Armstrong, a partner at Duane Morris, LLP. Regulators continue to share information and pursue similar targets across sovereign borders, but they are also competing more for the reputational and political benefits that high-profile enforcement actions provide. http://levick.com/blog/2013/01/03/jonathan-armstrong-global-regulatory-cooperation#.UUJC5hmxK1g http://levick.com/practices/litigation

            In this LEVICK Daily video interview, we discuss CEO succession issues with Paul Winum, Senior Partner and Global Practices Head at RHR International LLP. There was time when the CEOs themselves took full charge of the process – selecting and grooming their replacements with little input from the board. Today, the pendulum has swung as SEC rules governing the process and a host of other factors have converged to make total director engagement an absolute necessity. http://levick.com/blog/2012/12/05/paul-winum-ceo-succession#.UUJGrxmxK1g http://levick.com/practices/corporate-reputation

When foreign companies consider transactions that could potentially impact national security, it is always best to initiate the CFIUS application process as early as possible so that way problems can be addressed before they damage the brand. http://levick.com/blog/2012/10/24/mark-cowan-cfius-review#.UIg-OMXA9fA http://levick.com/practices/public-affairs

                Martin Hahn, a Partner in the law firm of Hogan Lovells US LLP, continues our examination of class action lawsuits filed against food and beverage companies alleged to have misled consumers with questionable labeling practices. Under intensified scrutiny, companies need to carefully vet their labeling practices – and especially use of the term “natural” – to ensure that they don’t provide well-resourced plaintiffs’ attorneys with an opportunity born of noncompliance with FDA guidance and regulations. http://levick.com/blog/2012/10/03/martin-hahn-food-labeling-lawsuits#.UGyDqCMb6x4 http://levick.com/practices/litigation

                    Today on LEVICK Daily, we continue our examination of recent lawsuits filed against the food and beverage industry with Robert Hibbert, a Partner in the Washington D.C. office of Morgan, Lewis & Bockius. Aggressive consumer advocacy in the area of food labeling dictates a need for companies to factor new levels of scrutiny into their marketing decisions, monitor precedent-setting decisions in the cases that have already been filed, and perhaps even establish industry-wide guidelines that buttress their compliance messaging. http://levick.com/blog/2012/09/24/robert-hibbert-food-labeling-lawsuits#.UGyEGiMb6x4 http://levick.com/practices/litigation

With adversaries making an aggressive case in the Court of Public Opinion, both offensive and defensive strategies are needed to assuage consumer concern and convince an increasingly wary public that they can believe what they read in the grocery store aisles. http://levick.com/blog/2012/09/20/jack-bonner-defeating-food-labeling-lawsuits#.UGyFUCMb6x4 http://levick.com/practices/litigation
