  • Dear Ms. Stobaugh, I am so sorry to learn of the loss of your sister. I read it in the paper yesterday. I have remembered you often over the years. I attribute you, my first employer, with teaching me about hard work and telephone ethics. You will remember me as Diane Ransom when I worked for you as a Summer Aide in 1968 to 1970. May God be with you and give you comfort.
