On my way back from NC today, I attended a funeral in Fernandina Beach, FL for Mary Susan Nicks. She was first my babysitter and later, when my mom married the father (Joseph Pocher) of her children, she became my stepmother. She was a good and kind person, had a positive influence on me and I mourn her passing. She raised four fine children to adulthood, and they are a testament to her character. May she rest in peace.
This is a photo of her three surviving children, Joseph, Ann and John:
