  5. It is with heavy heart that I just found out about Rezella……we never met but spoke frequently on the phone regarding business matters between her company and the one I work for……she was always a fun lady to speak with and we had the same shoe passion and joked often of buying more and a lady can never have too many shoes…..she will be missed by her coworkers and by myself…….rest with God now and I will be there someday to check out shoes with you……prayers to the family in this time of transition…….
