  11. I worked with Mrs. R at Rudder, she was a blessing to my life. Her patience was something I admired most; when I would be dealing with life her ability to just listen and give good solid advice helped me overcome so many things. Thought of her today and my heart broke when I asked someone about her and found out that she had transtioned to be with our Heavenly Father. Mrs. R I know you are looking down with your big smile and raspy voice laughing at all my silly and dramatic moments this year!!!
