There have been two woman in my life. My wife of 54 years that passed in 2013 and Merna Popper who I met only two short years ago and passed quite suddenly on May 24 2019. Merna Popper was a character! Raised by a father and mother that loved her dearly and brought her into the business world of her fathers in New York Cit y. When only in her teens Merna would play sercratary in her fathers office. One day her father yelled through the door, Toot ’s, (her father always called Merna Toots). “get Jack Kennedy on the phone, here is the telephone number for the presidents office in Washington!”
