Cathy, although I do not need to tell you, your Mother was One of The Most Wonderful, Thoughtful and Compassionate Folks on Gods Green Earth. As an out-of control 9th grader. Mrs. D. asked after class if any of us (mostly south-siders) wanted to make some money.(figured it would wear us-out and allow her to teach, I assume) We arranged a time and place to meet, and the rest is History.Over the Years I raked Mrs. D's Leaves, Trimmed the Hedges, Fed the Dog, Cut the Grass, Painted Her House (yellow is still my favorite color) and Chauffeured her around on many occasions as her eye sight failed.(was paid like a Boss I must say) After several years of Military Service and a BS, I Phoned (Wisc.) Mrs. D's and let her know (I hope) the silent influence she had on my life. Her Quiet encouragement ( Her Trade mark) and Subtle Expectations were not wasted on me.She was never preachy or much to lecture but somehow her point always came-across in a Mrs. D kind of way. God I LOVED Her !
Tonight I heard a Toto song (Africa) and was reminded of a house painting in 1981 and more importantly,the Wonderful Educator who took a chance on befriending (and employing) a lost/poor/wrong-side-of-town kid who needed some Encouragement and Self-worth. Well Mrs D. Your Investment Paid-off. My only regret is that I had not heard that Toto song 4 months ago. I surly would have been there with you Mrs. D
