Gonna miss you Evee. So enjoyed working with you 20+ years at ACC, especially the last few years when you were right across the cubicle from me. We laughed, we ate popcorn, we had a good time. You were a neat lady and I loved you. So glad I got to talk with you and wish you a happy birthday in August. You just went too quickly. Rest in peace dear lady.
