This picture is very special, it's my mom's first swearing in as County and District Clerk. My grandmother has passed away three months before she officially took office. It's also one of my favorite's because my dad was still alive. It also saddens me because he wasn't around to see me be sworn in by mom when I took over he position as County Clerks 12 years later. Pictured are (l-r) myself, my dad, my mom, and my baby brother at age eight.
