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.
