Thanks for being my family

I’m retiring from my job to focus on family, but I’ll miss everyone.

In August of 1989 my family moved to Enumclaw. We didn’t know a soul.

Soon after our arrival I was hired to be a cashier at the brand new Bag’nSave (QFC). From day one I was welcomed and accepted into your community. Over the next 30 years we have developed great friendships. I have held your babies. I have attended your birthdays, recitals, graduations, weddings and funerals.

During the last 10 years I was able to hire many of you. For most it was your first job. I loved giving people opportunities. We have truly shared our lives. We have laughed, cried, sang tunes and danced in the aisles.

On Sept. 10 I will hang up my apron. It was a bittersweet decision. You are like family to me and I will miss you. I have decided it is time for me to focus on my children and grandchildren. My husband and I also plan to spend time exploring this country together.

I couldn’t leave with out thanking you for your kindness and compassion and most of all your friendship. You have brought me so much joy. It has been a blessing and an honor to serve you. I look forward to seeing you around town.
