Barnes – Essay – mrsworkman529
My mother in law Kathy Workman is a beautiful person inside and out. I have learned so much from her the past two years I honestly don’t know where I would be without her. Kathy is the type of person you can talk to until you’re out of words and she will sit there and listen. Kathy never judges and always has this sense of calming over her.

At one time my mother was engaged and we were living in the man’s home; he was a truck driver, and she had a boyfriend. That same boyfriend she was cheating on him with his best friend.
