Mr. Kall, I send sincere condolences to you and your family upon the passing of Mateele. She remains in my heart always as a remarkable woman who inspired me daily. She and I shared many special moments when I was lucky enough to work for her. Her support means everything to me. Because of her, I went back and did graduate work and passed the CPA exam. I had a glorious career. Thank you. With love, Ellen
