The E-Mails You Come to Dread the Most

When the Big Boss sends out an e-mail with just the name of an attorney in the subject line, it's generally not a good thing.

Today was sadly no exception.

We never worked in the same assignment together, but had met at several social occasions. She was warm, friendly, smart and genuine. I hate having to write about someone in the past tense. I can't even begin to imagine what her family is going through, especially what her young daughters will go through once they are old enough to understand it all.

Hug your loved ones a little tighter tonight.

I just read an article in the LA Times and wondered if you knew her. So sad.

I can't believe this still. DH is OOT as of tonight and it terrifies me after all these crashes and freak accidents. I'm sorry about your cw'er. *hugs*

These are the times that remind me to live in the moment as much as possible. Life is too short whether your end comes today or in 50 years. My thoughts and prayers go out to your colleagues family, friends, and associates.

an attorney at MH's firm was in a freak accident before he started working there and he said it feels like a lot of the partners still aren't over it. so sad.
