A Reader Comment

“Recently I met Brigitte Grimm at a charity event, that I wanted to mention she attended alone, (I admire that very much, especially due to its size) she was one of the most genuine people I have come across in many years. She has been taunted by many of what I refer to as the “New Adams Family” and still held her head up high. I look forward for her to continue in the position, and keeping us on track financially!”
