  4. Starting work at ESC in December of 1974 was extremely challenging simply because of huge unemployment numbers, but suzanne was always there to guide all of us through the hard times. She was my boss or co-worker for the rest of our careers, but most of all, I considered her one of my dearest friends. She will be sorely missed.

Amy, I am deeply sorry for your loss. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. May God give you comfort, strength, and peace now and in the months ahead.
