I worked with Kathryn at Hart’s. She was a lovely lady who loved her children and liked talking about them. I was sorry to see her retire. I would like to extend my sympathies to her family.
I worked in layaway with Kay at Hart’s and she kept everything in tip top shape and the rest of us in line. She was great to work with. I would like to extend my sympathies to Carol, Barbara, and the rest of the family. Her passing saddens me.
