Burt's mom

I've mentioned the late father of our main character, Burt Humburg, a couple of times on this blog. But I haven't mentioned his mother Judy.
The best compliment I can give Burt's mom is she reminds me of my own mother: Loving, tough, God fearing, thoughtful and always ready for a good laugh. It's been a rich experience getting to know Judy (whose last name is now Dutra) as I've told her son's story, and her husband is definitely one of the good guys (another compliment I don't throw around too often).
This screenshot of Judy is from 1991, when the local news did a story after the Andover tornado. One of the Humburgs' checks was found by a farmer. In Iowa.
