    So sad to lose this wonderful friend and coworker! She was a joy to know and I will never forget her laugh and smiles! Such an encourager! A last reminder of my own mom as boss of a fantastic crew in hospitality!

    Prayers to family and friends. Kermit and Myrtle were on my meals on wheels route when they were in Dumas. We were trying to figure out if we were related or not. Never did figure it out. RIP
