As I retire…

We all can relate to how difficult this year has been for us, our country and the entire world.

As always, there is a silver lining which has been the arrival of a new healthy Grandbaby boy! Arjun Kondabolu.

At the same time, I’ve made the decision to retire at the end of the year.  Dec. 30, 2020, will be my last day.  It’s been

an amazing chapter in my life but now I must move on.  I’ll be spending time with Jeff, the new family, weaving and always, open to new adventure that life may have in store.

No words can express my appreciation and honor to have been part of the many families that I have served.  You all know whom you are and although we couldn’t hug good bye, I’m sure this means that our paths will cross again.

Stay well, stay healthy – I’ll miss you all.
