May was a very vivacious person. Her daughter Christina, actually got me my job at Boeing, and I have never met her. I will be forever grateful, because that job gave me a better life. I knew when I got May's Christmas card back, what had happened. I

have always dreaded this. I guess I sort of expected it. My friend, Diana, is the one that found her notice for me. Diana worked with us as well as Isabelle Gust at Tradewell. I was 19 years younger than May but you would never have known it. She was full of P and V. But she was a very kind and generous person. Loved her! She never forgot anything! Thank you again, Christina! May she rest in peace until we meet again.. .
