So sorry for your loss.I worked with her at Caseys many years ago and you couldn't ask for a better woman.We had so many talks on how things were in life, work, family, etc. and she never was scared to voice her opinion. She was a woman with the biggest heart and wouldn't think twice to help you.... R.I.H. my friend
