I worked with Brittany and Donald on the Goodwill Safari Shopping trips as their bus driver. (from Buckeye Charters ) I LOVED working with Brittany. She made the day , I loved her giggle, her smile, her energy. I always said she needs to bottle it. I just learned she had a new job. With the trips being cancelled due to Covid, I was out of touch. And now I have this very empty hole that keeps saying...shoulda, coulda, and If I woulda......

Kiddo,
Your legacy lives forever, for your loving presence will be in our hearts for ever. You welcomed the old newbies with grace on our first and only week in Enon, the angelic voice provided a soothing presence in the stressful meetings, the sense of humor was ok , the intelligence and your ever so willing to help will be missed. Ignore the typos kiddo because you know what my first language is.
Adieu

11 years wasn't nearly long enough but I will treasure the wonderful memories. Pool days, concerts, forced hugs, side splitting laughter, and ALL of the shenanigans. Shows those people a good time up there. Until we see each other again.
