I was so sad to hear that my friend, lunch buddy and accomplice had passed. Brianna, I know you don’t remember who I am, but I worked with your mom when you were a beautiful little girl. I left the
bankruptcy court before your mom but while we were there, we always managed to get into a “little” trouble. lol You and your family have my sincerest condolences.
