Independent Sales Director/Random Lake, Wis.
In 1987, I unexpectedly gave birth to my son Tom while in Dallas [at Mary Kay Seminar]. I received a phone call from Mary Kay Ash. I told her I wanted to attend Awards Night. She sent her limo to pick me up at the hospital. I sat with Mary Kay, and she held my hand until I crossed the stage! Her parting words to me were "pass it on" and return as a Sales Director. I did! What an honor and privilege to experience her generosity, compassion and love that exemplifies who she truly was.
