  1. SAD that individuals like her are granted a position of trust and it is violated. Prison is the place for her. Our mail carrier, Jennifer, is the BEST. Our 20-month-old G Grandson is in awe of her. Every day he insists that his G Grandmother take him out to greet her at our mailbox. He recognizes the sound of her mail truck long before she arrives. For Halloween, his mother bought him a mail carrier uniform. He was so proud that he ran out in his uniform to show it off, They have quite a rapport. There are so many good ones that it is sad that a thief spoils it for others. Thank you Jennifer!
