My husband and I scrimped and saved for so many years. We did our best to build a nest egg... so that we wouldn't be a burden to our family. After Ronald passed, I moved to an assisted living facility. A nice place. They told me they'd take care of everything. But, then one day they said all my money was gone. How could that be? Where did it all go?
― Geraldine Strauss in Jimmy McGill's commercial for Davis & Main[src]

Geraldine Strauss was an elderly woman who collected porcelain Hummel figurines and was also a client of Jimmy McGill.
