13X365 Anita D.

We were coworkers at the cable company. I was in my early 20s, working my way through University. You were a mother of four with a husband on disability. At times I would complain about the amount of homework or how my family problems were getting me down. You would gently remind me that there were practical solutions. Then you would crack me up somehow, a wicked sparkle in your green eyes. Once when I behaved particularly reprehensibly, you firmly told me you expected better of me. It couldn’t have hurt more if it had it come from a family member. It meant the world to me.
