I remember her so well for her kind heart! Whenever I had some money in my pocket, about once a month, I would go to Zimmerman’s for breakfast before walking to McCaskey for school. One day she asked me if I was a high school student and why I didn’t have breakfast at home. I told her mother was unemployed , we didn’t have a refrigerator where we lived so I usually had just tea before school. She was so distraught and insisted on paying for my meal! She told me Michael was her son and in my class. I stopped going in because I didn’t want her to pay my tab, but I never forgot her sunny disposition, encouraging words and generosity!
