I'll always remember Emily from the day I walked into SKF for a job interview. I entered the lobby and heard "Hi Hun, What can I do for you". What a super sweet person.

She was one of the sweetest ladies you will ever meet. If I had not married my Joe, I may never have had the opportunity to meet their special neighbors, the Smiths.
