I hadn't seen Vilma for many, many years but thought of her often...really...she was special. I was just 18 when I worked with her at the law firm...we sat next to each other up front. I shared all the small details of my life with her (you know out dancing each evening in Tampa and Clearwater, meeting guys) and thinking back now, know she probably wasn't as interested as she acted. She was really funny and would share some of her "stories" of when she was young with me too. She did light up every time your dad stopped by. She spoke of you often and your son often. She would always bring me some of her "awesome" spaghetti sauce when she made it and even shared her recipe with me. I remember glogg at her house around the Christmas holidays too. I have many fun and fond memories of your mom...and I am sorry I didn't look her up a few years ago when I moved back to the area. My sympathies to you and your entire family.

Dear family:
Vilma was a wonderful person who had a big impact on me. You have my deepest and most heartfelt sympathy for your loss. When I joined the law firm, Vilma was my dad's receptionist, and she prepared all of the wills and documents for clients. Boy, could she type. The typewriter sounded like a telex machine when she was pounding out a document. The IBM Selectric was state of the art then, and she could make it spew out words like an ink-jet!! Back before computers and word processors, mistakes meant starting the whole document over, or at least that page. She was not only a terrific secretary, she was a wonderful person. She was as kind and charismatic as anyone I ever met. She was elegant and graceful as I remember, fondly. We still have the bookcases in the office that she had George build for my dad! That truly was "the greatest generation" They don't make them like that anymore. On behalf of Altman Law Offices, she was an all-time all-star.
