I am so very sorry for your loss. I worked one tax season filling in for your Mom when she was sick with pneumonia when I was in high school. I believe it was in 1984. Years later I ran into her at JCPenny's with my two young daughters and she was so happy to see me after all of those years she gave me a big hug and I introduced her to my daughters to whom she said, "Your mother was the best little typist we ever had." She was always so sweet to me and so was your father. They wanted to send me on to school for accounting after I graduated, but unfortunately I didn't take them up on their offer. I have nothing but fond memories of both of them. Keeping all of you in my thoughts and prayers.
