Todd and Kaitlyn -

I first met you Mother at Texas A&M in 1975. She became an instant friend. Imagine my pleasure at having her mentor our small business in the patent realm. We trusted her implicitly. The world has lost one remarkable woman. I regret that I was slow to learn of her passing. She was proud of you both and spoke of you often. You have our condolences in this time of loss and grief.
