Such a wonderful person, we worked together and I would always say she was the backbone of a male dominated workplace, if we were better people we'd have given her a piece of each of our paychecks because she was the key to our ability to function. We spoke often about our kids, she was as high of quality a person as you'll ever meet. She'll be greatly missed.
