Dawn,
I was your mother’s coworker at NWFSC. I am so sorry to read about your mother’s death.
My son , Albert, played soccer with you when you were at elementary school. Your mother was helper for the team. On one of the practice day, I assumed my husband would pick up Albert after practice. But he forgot. I was so worried on my way to get Albert.
It was such a relief when I saw your mother ( you probably were there too)was there with Albert way after the time he should be picked up. (back then, there was no cellphone).This is one reason your mother is forever in my memory.
She was such helpful when I started working at college.
I grateful for your mother’s dedication to help others.
Take care!
Margaret Tu
