When I was growing up Mrs. Schrimp was somebody that was in my life on almost a daily basis. Whether she was picking Albert, Mark and myself up from an after school function or kicking us out of the house because we were being boys and she would suggest to us that new adventures awaited us OUTDOORS, in a way only a seasoned parent can pull off. Looking back I admire her restraint as she sat quietly behind the wheel of the car as Albert, Mark and myself stood outside the car door arguing about who was going to ride up front on the way home from practice. Mrs Schrimp would offer compromises but Albert and I always took exception to Mark’s seemingly God-given right to always sit up front. She never yelled at us but was just a Mom letting us work out our differences among ourselves. Her technique was genius because after a few minutes we would begin to feel really stilly and we would all get into the car…Mark up front and Albert and I in the back.

She was a good wife and mother who loved her boys and except for the breakfast food buyer at Kroger, Mrs. Schrimp probably purchased more dry breakfast cereal than any other person on the planet. Albert, Mark and Keith while growing up consumed more cereal than most small countries.

My thoughts and prayers are with all that loved her.
