The Loss of a Co-Worker

Long RealtyA lovely, professional co-worker of mine at Long Realty Dove Mountain passed away last night.  She was in her 50's.

It is with extreme sadness that I share this tragic news.

I met her in 2009 on the opposite side of a sales transaction.  She was communicative, friendly, detailed, and a great negotiator.  When the sale closed, she invited me to become a part of her office, but I'd politely declined.

Years later, a manager at Dove Mountain had given me a call and asked to talk about joining Long Realty. Barb was the first person I called to talk about the move.  We'd kept in touch through ocassional emails and lunches, and I valued her opinion.

We ended up with offices next to each other and often shared a bite or a coffee as we talked about professional challenges, vented, or just visited.

Barb -- you will be missed.

A reminder to live life to its full potential - we never know what is around the corner.

Mr. Sandman, Bring me a Dream…
It's interesting. I couldn't sleep this week, so I did what I often do when the sandman is out to play -- I get up and write blogs. I posted one about 1:15 a. m. and was surprised to see that within 20 minutes or so, over 30 folks had read that blog… more
