Dana was such a happy, pleasant post office manager at Pharma Plus. I always looked forward to going in and checking my mailbox just to get greeted by her big smile and kind heart.
So sorry for your big loss.

Dana was a joy to work with. She always had a kind word for everyone she met and was always willing to go the extra mile for people.
