    Such a sweet lady. When I worked at DG, she was in one day, and had been wearing her Moms rings ( she had recently passed) and she lost them. I found them, put them in the safe, she called later, asking if they had been found. I told her yes, I had put them in the safe. When she came to pick them up, she had brought me a hanging plant. I told her that was ok, no need to do that, but she wouldn't take it. I never forgot her for thst. RIP dear lady.💖🙏💖
