Maria, I just can't believe you're gone. You are such a fixture up there at the store, such a permanent part of that family; it's just inconceivable that you will not be there anymore. You were part of what made Albertsons (now Marketstreet) for me. Oh, the memories come flooding back now! Mostly I remember those long nights you had to work overtime when you were manager of the Deli and I was crew chief of the night stockers. Virtually every night, you had to work till midnight, or sometimes even to 1 or 2 am, and I would walk you out to your car when you were finally ready to leave. The long conversations we used to have out there in the parking lot were good for both of us : you would unload on me, I would unload on you. We would discuss our jobs, our trials and tribulations, but also so many other things, while standing out there by your car in the empty parking lot under those dark, starlit skies. It was very therapeutic for both of us, I think, but mostly for you, because it very soon became obvious that you had far more trials and responsibilities than I could ever handle. After listening to you, my trials and tribulations never seemed like all that much. I can honestly say I truly enjoyed and appreciated you in so many ways. (I especially appreciated the fact that you would always let me and the night stockers have most of the leftover fried chicken from the Deli!) My love and respect for you has grown SO much over the years. It's going to take some time to get used to not seeing you there every morning in the Seafood Department now. Even though we rarely saw each other in recent years (particularly ever since we became Marketstreet) I shall still miss you. You were still such a permanent fixture up there, someone I would just always expect to see. Thank you so much for your love and friendship. I love and admire you more than words can say, I really do. I only wish I would've said some of these things to you while you were here, but no matter : I shall see you again in Heaven someday. Till then, rest in peace, dear lady. You were a blessing to me.
"Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord . . . that they may rest from their labors, and their works do follow them." (Revelation 14:13)
P.S. Thanks again for all the fried chicken!
