Ohhhh, my Dear Sweet I Loved You, my long time precious friend. We met decades ago working for Doc Pettey.....those were the days! You never failed to recognize an occasion with your yummy baked goods & you were always the ray of sunshine in the office. I loved remaining your dental hygienist until Covid took that away from us. To know you was to adore you....Rest in Heavenly Peace my Beloved Angel.
