  5. Brianne Slamin condolence:

    This is truly heartbreaking. I am so deeply sorry for your loss. I had the pleasure of working with her remotely and only recently had the chance to “meet” her over zoom. She was as beautiful on the outside as she was on the inside. She lit up our zoom meetings and brought so much laughter to us all. Sweet Leah even popped into a meeting and I could see the love between them. Her energy and love was contagious, her good vibes will stay with us and she will remain in my prayers as will all of you.

    Love, Brianne
