I worked for your Mom ab 1.5 yrs n she was the joy of my life. We had so much fun together esp. At the condo,s pool! Your Mom loved to swim n believed that was one of the reasons she was alive. We hit it off from the moment i saw her Angelic face n someday when i make to heaven i hope we'll b swimmin together n she always talked about making PB n J's n taking her children to the beach. And she told me stories ab the depression. I love you forever, Nancy. Rosanne
