Hi Gary, my sympathies go out to your family as you grieve the loss of "Bernie". I am happy you were able to be there in her last few days at Good Shepherd during the COVID-19 pandemic. She was very dependent on you these last couples years having moved from home to home and finally Good Shepherd. You can feel proud and honored that you went the extra distance for your mom as she needed someone to help and be with her. As we have discussed our mothers in the past, I feel your mom was an important figure in your life providing much joy. I feel the same way about my mom. And it was fun that we shared some very nice moments with our mothers at the "Lemonade Arts Fair" at SCSU. You know, I don't really recall how (or why) I started saying the phrases "is your mommy there?" or "where is your mommy?". It sure brought a little joy in our lives during work, sometimes we were too guilty of laughing over something about our "moms". Ah, work, can you count the number of overnight phone calls you made about SRS crashing on some tape error or invalid parameter card? And what about the dreaded "Data Ignored In Control Mode? Well, I can just tell you are smiling (and perhaps a chuckle) about our times at SCSU. It was a joy to work with you all those years. Thx for the memories. We will get together after this pandemic subsides and allows the bars to reopen. In the meantime we raise our glasses to Bernie. Cheers, Cheers! Take Care and God Bless You, Rick :-)
