Monica, What a grand lady your Mom was. How I enjoyed her when we both worked at TI. I would think of her always when going by her little house in Clayton.
I have to say you were special in my life also.
God Bless,

Always a smile and a good word when I saw her. Her family and my parents had somewhat of a kinship as I grew up. I will remember all of them, if but a single memory of each crosses my mind.

My condolences to family and friends. This woman was a staple in my high school days, as I was frequently in the office and in her space. She was kind and caring and didn’t take my crap! She put me to work and showed me patience and trust, and maybe my only bit of favoritism at TI. My her spirt live on through good memories...
