    I never saw this lady when she wasn’t smiling. She always…ALWAYS greeted me with a smile. I haven’t seen her in awhile, but she always put a smile on my face. I think God just needed a Greeter in Heaven…
    You will be the best Karla!
    My deepest sympathy and prayers goes out to the family for losing such a sweet sweet lady.
