So many great memories of our dear friend and my co-worker at OEC. She was truly a blessing in our lives. I have so many fond memories of our adventures, work-life, shopping for that just perfect accessory. She is my dear friend and my family. To her family our sincere sympathy and especially to Nancy and James...she was and will always be Crazy Legs. Love to all of her family, Max and Sherry Adams
