    There are some people who come into your life through work but live in your heart as friend. Retirement and other life changes create distances but the memories remain. Always, always one who could be depended upon for honesty, compassion and support. I know she touched many more lives than she ever knew. Deepest sympathy to the family at this time of great loss.
