Oh Sousa, i have tried to deny all this happend. I have remembered all the times i would come into work and there you were, this short little thing bouncing around happy as could be. Usually singing or rapping some song you had stuck in your head. Or just there rocking any station you were put on. I remember you bailing me out many of times when i was in too deep with drinks. But i also remember how proud you always have been of your girls. I remember when you spoke about them how your face would light up. I remeber how proud you were when you bought your car on your own! I remember how great you always were when my 2 boys came in. But mostly i remember how much fun you are and how hard you always worked. I am pretty sure you left work exhausted everyday. So thank you for all the amazing unforgetable memories that i will always have and will always cherish.

I will always remember going into dunkin donuts every morning and melissa asking while in line waiting for my turn to order if my son was getting his wake up wrap. One morning he decided to get hash browns and she had already made his sandwich so she told me to take it no charge. She was always so sweet and friendly. She is definitely missed.
