We just have to include this picture of Jill's late aunt Betty Fiorina on here!   Santa Fe native, Secretary of State of New Mexico three separate terms.  Served as acting Governor of NM for six months.  Business woman, activist, animal lover and rescuer....Ran the oldest trading post in Santa Fe during the 40's....It was called "Candelarios" at that time. Oh, the lovely Native American  art she collected from that era!  Saved 100's if not 1,000's of cats and dogs, birds, desert tortoises, you name it,  over her lifetime. Many ended up coming to Utah to live with us!  A lady who loved to play the slots....we inherited our gambling fever from her!   Loved by all who knew her, she was the best aunt and friend we could have ever asked for!  Worked in politics for many years, along with her active roles in government, she was always  inolved in local and state government, in a variety of roles.  Her dedication to Santa Fe and the "Land of Enchantment"  earned her the honor of having a state government building named after her.  Located  on Siringo Road in Santa Fe "The Betty Fiorina Printing Building".  Love you and miss you Betty, you have been an inspiration to me my entire life!
