So sorry to learn about Mrs. Jefferson’s passing. She was such a kind woman. I knew her when she was a lunch attendant with my Mom at Norton School many years ago. She and my Mom were great friends. I also went to school with her son, Benjamin. Mrs. Jefferson was a wonderful woman. I remember her fondly. God bless her family.
