    To Mrs. Hunt’s daughter and family,
    I worked with your Mother back in 1972 at Connoly, Bove. I was a young inexperienced 19 year old and your Mother took me by the hand and guided me in the workings of a law firm. She was my biggest supporter and would always put in a good word for me to my superiors. I have been working in the legal field ever since. I have fond memories of your Mother. She would always light up when she mentioned your name. I am sorry for your loss. It is never easy to lose a parent no matter what age we are. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.

      Hi Ann. Sorry to say, I don’t remember you. But your message touched me; and I just love hearing of these sweet memories of my mother. She would have been so pleased to know you remembered her–You must have been special. …. My mother had a good life, funny, feisty and smart. We will miss her.
