Definitely a lady of style and class., I remember our New Year’s Eve at Cathy‘s and Jack’s house. We were dressed for the evening’s occasion and admiring each other’s shoes. She Shared with me the great deal she received at the Sear’s shoe department. I still have those shoes today and think of her whenever I wear them. Now they’ll be even more of a special memory.
