I worked with you at Talbots for years. I was a Business Education teacher, also. Your mother is who helped me get the job at Garnet Career Center after she retired. She was such a blessing to me. Wishing you peace to bring comfort, courage to face the days ahead and loving memories to forever hold in your heart.
