Stu - When Rosa Parks worked for Conyers in the McNamara Bldg, I was working in the building also. I used to see her on the elevator, and all I said was "Hi." I wanted to give her a hug, but I never attempted any conversation. But I wish I had. So, you are fortunate to have been personally in her company. Always keep that close to your heart.
