SWDesertHomes in Tucson, Marana, Oro Valley, Vail & More!: The Loss of a Co-Worker

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.

I'm sorry for your loss, Cara. Barb sounds like the type of Realtor we all aspire to be.

What a great Blog about Barb - I was shocked to read the news this morning Cara Marcelle Mancuso.  I can remember the last time I saw her, was in her office, and because it had been awhile since I'd last seen her, I went over to give her a hug.  You know what that is like, as I give you hugs, too . . .  that is a wonderful feeling to know that I touched her one last time, though of course, who knew it would truly be one last time . . .  I can remember her riding with us for Home Tours, and sitting next to her in the back of the office at Weekly Staff Meetings.  She was special and one of a kind, and to me, her light did shine bright . . .
