I’m sad that I was unable to be there to give my condolences to you personally on Saturday. I enjoyed my shifts working with Amelia; she especially enjoyed talking about the Niantic beauty shop and Norwich beauty school, cars and history of Willimantic. We’d watch Mash and movies and have discussions about the classic hairstyles and wardrobe. Amelia loved it when I played the Italian cd she had. She was opinionated about everything, but I’d usually concede and that made her happy. I got many smiles from her.
