    Jennifer ,
    My condolences to you and your family !
    29 years at Walmart – That is a very long time and I want you to know that your mom will be missed by so many but they will always have a special place in their hearts when it comes to Leola. She always took time to say hello , joke around , let you know and feel you were welcomed in that store. I can honestly say Leola was a dedicated employee at store # 1254 / Bellmead . She was my CSM back in the days and I learned from the best. Just want you to know Jennifer my prayers are with you .
    Please take care
