  1. “Tink”, just read about your great loss and send my heartfelt condolences. She was a great gal, and I certainly enjoyed working for her when I helped her with her friends liquidation. In case you do not remember me, I used to own and operate ESTATE LIQUIDATORS in Pueblo. My best to you! Blessings!
