I was sorry to see the news about Carmella, my condolences. I had the pleasure of working with her for many years when I worked as a Dental Hygienist at Loeffler-Pitt Dental. In between taking care of her dental care we had some nice conversations and she kindly gifted me some of her crochet work over the years. I was aware of how much she missed her husband which saddened me. I trust they are reunited. Thinking of you during this difficult time.
