    Desi was so awesome to work with as a Manager during my days with Home Depot. Always a great resource to be trusted in difficult situations with both employees and customers. Sending prayers and much love of healing to the family. Such a beautiful loss, but for now, I will look toward the Sun that shines and know she is beaming through those rays.
