Dear Jennifer, Emily, Stephen and Families-My thoughts are with you all. I hope fond memories soon replace your sadness. Thank you so much for the beautiful video memorial. I loved seeing Aunt Prue growing up and the family pictures. I especially loved the pictures of the “girls”. I can see Grandma Ruth, Aunt Edith and Aunt Prue hanging out together chatting over the cocktail hour in heaven. My best to you all.

I am so sorry to hear about Prue. I have worked with Prue since I came to H & R Block 10 years ago. I worked evenings and week-ends and she would fill in for the swing shift and on week-ends for us. She was amazing in the number of hours she could work. Please accept my condolences at this difficult time of loosing a loved one.

I have known Prue for years through her work with H & R Block. I was in the position of being her office manager this year and found her to be a wonderful source of information. She was never afraid of doing the research needed to do our job. She also was a tireless worker and willing to do whatever was needed of her. She will be sorely missed in the coming tax seasons. My heart and prayers are with her family.

I met Ms. Palmer at an EX-POSE meeting. Her concern for separated and divorced former military spouses was evident. She performed a much needed community service as the regional EX-POSE contact and will be sorely missed. Please accept my condolences.

My sincere condolences go out to Pru’s family. I worked with her for about 15 years at H&R Block. She was a mentor and truly a kind soul. She always tried to keep a smile and a positive attitude about life that was infectious to those around her. She will be missed.

On behalf of the entire membership of Ex-Pose, I extend our deepest sympathies to you all. I know that it is a very difficult time. Prue was a valuable and giving member of our organization for many years. She opened her heart to many spouses going through military divorce. We will miss her terribly.

Prue would call our main office in Washington for updates and new information to pass on to our members living in your Virginia Beach area.

Thank you Prue!!!Rest well our friend……..

So sorry to read of Prue’s passing. I had the pleasure of working with her this year at Block. She impressed me with her income tax knowledge and amazed me with her stamina. Prue had a tremendous capacity for hard work and long hours. She will be missed.

Please accept my sincere condolences.
