MEMORIES & CONDOLENCES
Taffy was one-of-a-kind in all the good ways. I served on John Tower’s staff in Washington and Dallas from 1962 onward and had several opportunities to speak with Taffy on the phone. I’ll never forget her childlike voice which caused many of us to ask, “May I speak with your mother?” when calling her, only to learn quickly that we were already doing so. What a powerhouse resided behind that sweet voice. I’m sure she was well loved by all who were lucky enough to know her.
