If I could tell her one thing

10:27 PM

She was one of those people that will always carry a very special place in my heart. She was the one who taught me the ropes of working at the Texas Capitol. I just found out that she died yesterday while on vacation with her husband. Betty will be missed by me and many others.

I wish I could tell her one last thing. I told her so many time that I appreciated her and that she meant a lot to me, but I will never be able to tell Betty that my next book in the Kate's Case Files was going to be dedicated to her.

In her memory, I would like to share it here today.

To Betty Horton:
You showed me the ropes of working at the Texas Capitol
You made me feel like there was no such thing as a stupid question
You instilled in me a love for learning about the different sides of an issue,
You taught me so many things about interacting with people that still serves me well
Thank you for being a positive influence in my life
