To the family of Ms. June, We were so very sorry to read of her death. In 1976-77 she and my husband worked together for the state. He thought the world of her. I met her once at a wedding of mutual friends. But for the past 42 years we have exchanged Christmas Cards and updates on each others lives. I will miss that. She was a Very Special Lady. Know that someday you will see her again.
