Our Kmart family of workers!
I have worked with many fine people throughout my 43 years of retail and so many left an indelible impression on me. Melba was one of those whose path crossed mine and I and so many others loved her and her, "can do", work ethic. My heart was broken for her when her precious daughter Sabrina left us too early in that tragic car accident many years ago. So sad to hear this news. Praying for this family and friends.
She will be sorely missed!
