Dear Monika and Vincent and Family., I worked with Barb at the County Clerks. Your Mom was a joy to work,l with, she taught me a few words in German, and made the best Getman potato salad I ever tasted. I got a chance to talk to your Mom after she retired, and she said she was enjoying life. My deepest condolences to all of you.
