Guestbook

I was fortunate to work with Paula, David, Joyce, Renee, and Ronnie. They were all part of the great C & A family, which I was proud to be a part of. Paula was a great team member who always gave her best every day. She told me what I needed to hear on many occasions, even if I didn't want to hear it - and I was better for her honesty. She was blessed to have a wonderful mother who taught me so much in my life, she showed me what it meant to be a leader - not a boss. I'm sure she taught Paula much more.
I am so sorry for the families loss, she was a special person.
