The community recently lost a local treasure, suddenly and shockingly. Kathy Gerletti, the lead counter person at the Bay Street post office (El Verano) died on 5 January. She suffered a stroke on 28 December.
Kathy was the life’s breath of the tiny, funky Bay Street post office. She was bright, upbeat, friendly, incredibly informed, and rarely in anything but the best of moods despite the occasionally heavy traffic in the little corner office. She treated everyone with humor and openness, and ready to offer the best shipping solution for everything. At this time, I understand that the family plans a memorial in the spring. I know many join me in mourning her loss.
