From Modest Beginnings...



All the hard work...

Moving, unloading, hammering, and stocking...

Through all the crazy times...

Up until now.



There isn't another person in the world I'd have rather shared the journey with than Kim.
She has worked many long hours to help get Mystic Paper where it is today. And now she's officially retiring! Can you believe it? Kim will be here off and on until the end of the year, and if you are lucky you'll be able to visit a bit with her and to wish her a happy retirement.

Kim, you have been here everyday to make me laugh and to help share all the work! I will miss you my wonderful friend. And thanks again for letting me buy the BIG scissors. Love you!

Well....I am happy for Kim, but sad for me, I always felt so welcome when she was at the register! She knew my name! ( As othersof you do too) And I always had a great conversation about whatever.....have a good time Kim and come visit often, so I can see you again!

Kim, you will definitely be missed. Since you will have more time...let's do lunch sometime on me! You are one of the nicest store owners I know...include Jennifer in that, of course. LenaS
