Many years ago I flew home to West Point for a weekend visit with my family and brought a coat for Mrs. Carrie Mae to alter for me.  At the time I delivered the coat to her I did not realize that my available cash was low.  I asked if I could write her a check and she said no!  I asked if I could run to the bank as I only had about $50 in cash at the time.  She looked at me with a very serious expression on her face and asked "how much do you think I'm going to charge you?  Shockingly she asked for $20 and took my coat.  Everytime I wear that coat I think of her. 

I will always remember her as a very nice lady.
