A coworker of mine passed away yesterday. She was 61-years-old.
Having had surgery for a previous back injury, she dealt with chronic pain. As it slowly worsened over time, she attributed it to "getting older."
When she couldn't take it anymore & saw a doctor it turned out to be much more. She was diagnosed with cancer only a few short weeks ago, & it was already too late.
She was always friendly & helpful; very easy to get along with.
She will be missed.
