Denise so sorry to hear of your moms passing. She leaves behind many wonderful stories to be shared . I have fond memories of her as my client many years ago and I remember many of the stories you shared with me. My deepest condolences to you and your family.

Dear Denise,

So very sorry to learn of your mom’s passing. I would like to bring you a smile with a story I still tell people decades later. While I was still in elementary school (Brinton Memorial), I recall attending Saturday morning German classes taught by your mom, with my younger brother who couldn’t have been any older than grade two or three. I remember how he always used to call her “Mrs. Frau Beck” 🙂 And your mom, oh so graciously, let him continue to address her as Mrs. Frau Beck—even while in German class—despite me as older sister having much less patience. It’s a very fond memory I have of your mom and it always makes me smile—hope it brings you one, too. All the best and take care. Kristine Griba (Kris Peddle).

Peter,I am very sorry for your loss
