  1. Ann: Sorry to hear about your mother’s passing. I worked with her the summer she was starting to retire at as Vo Tech secretary (got me a lot more hours as she was able to take time off finally!). She introduced me to Paul Harvey, and we’d have some pretty good laughs (if quiet ones), in the office with the things he said. I remember them with fondness.

    I only met your once at Personnel, but wanted to offer my condolences. As an only, it’s harder still to lose a mom. Hopefully, you have a lot of good memories (and laughs) to get you through the next few months.

    God bless,
    Debbie Engelke

  2. Ann, so sorry to hear about your mom. Please know that my thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family!
