    Jamie (and family) – I’m sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. I remember when I started with the City, she was a friendly & familiar face. When I met her, the first thing she asked about was how was my mom doing. She was kind to most that met her. On a personal level, I remember how we teased her about her cooking. I know you were little, but she burned water – wait that might have been Sherry! But your mom was the first to introduce me to Spam. And I liked it! Needless to say that I have fond memories of her. Especially for her kind & gentle soul. God bless you! Remember all the good she taught you!
