Janet and family,
It has been decades, but it is so easy to recall your mom fondly. I loved her smile, positive spirit and generosity that were always so present. As teens, we used to call her “sweet” and now I think it was simply genuine goodness. My condolences are with you.

I "ran away" across the street to the Reckert home around age 8 packing only my plastic dinosaurs. I was certain Mrs Reckert would provide breakfast and quickly figure out which room would be converted into my bedroom. Alas, Mrs. Reckert did not even provide a bowl of cereal knowing it would only prolong my exit. What amazing insight!
My condolences on your loss. I have only fond memories.

Janet Reckert Posted at 02:30pm

Steve - Thank you so much for this laugh!
