This photo was taken during my time at Cracker Barrel. We had to evacuate since there was a small electrical fire. We all sat on the curb joking around, laughing, taking pictures, watching the firemen hard at work while hoping we would have to close for the day. She was such a truly beautiful person inside and out! My thoughts are with her friends and loved ones during this time 💕
