I have been thinking about this precious lady whom I knew as a customer at the dry cleaners that I managed in Midway, back in the nineties. I was saddened when my google search found her obituary. She was so kind to me. We had lunch together a couple of times. She reminded me of my own mother who I lost at a young age. Such a beautiful person who touched my heart and will never be forgotten. My prayers are with Mr McNeil and their family.
