So sorry to Missy's family. I will miss see her smiling face and visiting with at work and around town. She had an amazing memory for toppings I disliked on salads and knew the change went in the senior meals jar. She'd put her tip in the jar too since she knew I worked there and she said she shopped at the thrift store sometimes. This world lost a genuinely nice person.
