Wordless Wednesday 12/15

I don't really like calling these posts wordless Wednesdays, because I always end up writing so much anyways.

This morning I got news that a wonderful lady I worked with passed away from breast cancer.  She was young, maybe mid forties at most.  She was married, and had one daughter, who I think is about 19 right now.

Kelly was the sweetest coworker I have ever had - and I looked forward to the days we had scheduled together.  She was a new manager, so I helped train her.  She always told me how much I helped her - when really it was the reverse.  I had been transferred to a bigger store, and it was not my preference.  Her kindheartedness made my transition so easy, and I quickly began to think of that store as my home store.

Nearing the end of my college career, I got an internship and left the company.  Kelly was there on my last day.  She kept thanking me for all of my help. and hugged me as she gave me a tearful goodbye.

She was definitely one of the sweetest souls I have ever met, I feel so lucky to have known her.  I am saddened for her family, and pray they find comfort.

In my area there have also been two fatal crashes in the last two days, the first killed a 20 year old woman and her unborn child.  The second killed two adults, one child, and one child is currently in the hospital, I do not know that child's condition.

All this news is disheartening.  I could really use a pick-me-up right now.  If you live in an area that gets a lot of snow and ice like I do, please stay home unless necessity puts you out on the roads, stay safe.



So sorry for your loss. It's always hard to hear about death, even more so this time of year.
