Sad news...

May be some of you knew her, may be some of you knew her without knowing her name, I am absolutly certain that Barbara knew her, Dawn Eleanor Ettiene (Henrieta) passed away on mother day in her house from a heart attack. She was an employee of Le Grand Marche, and with Esther, she was my favorite cashier as well as the favorite of many of us resident according to the line at her station, for the simple reason she was smilly, polite, couteous, and extremly kind.
This is the reason why the Management of Le Grand Marche decided to closed down the store today (and I beleive yesterday..) in respect to her memory. I basically saw her at least once a day, sometime two when I forgot something, everyday during the last few years, since I was shopping for my restaurant.
I am sure she will be missed by many of us, and again it is so unfair that it is always the good people who departe the first...
Peace to her soul.

OMG That is very sad. We were in her check out and she was always smiling, I remember her because we commented how nice she was when we got in the car. Prayers go out to her family.

Those of us who frequent, Grand Marche, were shocked to hear she had died.
she was one of the good ones!
and she died too young!

I didn't know her, but it's just so sad when someone leaves their family and friends. May she rest peacefully.
