Darla Garner Dear Dave, Sami and family, please accept my heartfelt condolences. Uni was truly a friend. I loved working with her and we always had fun. I'm sorry for your loss. I have so many beautiful memories of her. The one that stands out the most to me right now was the day she became a US citizen. She was so excited and so very happy! Uni was a friend to every one that knew her. God bless your family.
