On my first week or so working at Jenna Baskets, in May of 2006, a woman called to place an order. I had no idea what I was doing yet and I was the only one here. However, the woman was very kind and was very understanding that I had just started. She told me not to worry, everyone was new sometime.
About a week later, the same woman, Pat Norris from Butterfly Nurseries in Vista, California, came in to purchase baskets. She brought me a plant (pictured at the top), so I could have something on my desk for my new job. She was so nice. As long as I have been working here, she and her husband Victor were some of my favorite customers. This summer Victor passed away. He had been sick for a long time. I learned this morning that Pat passed away last week on Thursday. My heart goes out to her family and to the people at Butterfly Nurseries.
On another note, much more positive, today is my friend Paula’s birthday. Just so you know, she is old… older than me. (By like 2 ½ months, but that counts.)
