Sorry for your Loss. When I was very young my Mother (Katie who was deaf) worked for Tim’s Parents as a Housekeeper and Maid for many years. I used to drop her off and pick her up. I am sure you all (kids) probably do not remember/ but I remember when you all were growing up in that beautiful white house in Else Demonde Heights. RIP Tim
