    • Oh my god. I’m at an absolute loss for words right now! “Dani” as I called her at work, was the most sincere most impressionable driven young woman I’d ever met, & consequently she was favorite manager ever!! I’m heartbroken, praying for her family, especially her son. She talked about him alllllllllll the time at work……”D.jonez”
