Who insisted on calling me that woman,I respectfully ask Judge Benson to tell the attorney to refer to me as the Plaintiff, or mrs. Burrell, he did it several more times,I was quiet for a moment and I  look at Judge BensonI, He said to Mr. B if  you refer to mrs. Burrell as that woman again I am going to hold you in contempt of Court. I look at mr. B. and His face got beet red! I simple said thank you YourHonor. He inturned said I will take this matter under advisement, I though then that I wold win , but he wa respectfully of an attorney against a pro se person. He did  ruled in my favor.

"To say Roger was the epitome of class and distinction is an understatement.  Our hearts break as we know that Roger and Nancy had a true bond and one of the most loving marriages ever.  He will be greatly missed, but forever loved, and we will be reunited with him in heaven, where he is, in the meantime, advocating for us!!!! xoxo"
