5 condolences: co-workers

Working alongside people you like to spend time with makes work feel less like…work. I am one of the lucky ones because I work at Legacy.com, where I am surrounded by people who are compassionate, thoughtful, funny, and supportive. And I truly enjoy coming to work and spending time with them.

With Labor Day coming up on Monday, this week we share 5 condolence messages about co-workers:

  1. Colette was one of the Tribune’s special people. She knew everyone and everything about the place. She had an innate ability to make everyone seem special. Her obituary told of her love for the Tribune. Her co-workers held the same kind of love for her. [Published in Chicago Tribune]
  2. Mike was a wonderful co-worker and I learned alot from him. I particularly enjoyed our Italian “everything” conversations . From Sinatra to Proscuitto and how to cook with it, Mike was a class act and he will be missed. Our sincerest condolenses from my family to yours. [Published in Star-Ledger]
  3. Bina, my friend and co-worker. The conversations we had driving home from work each day from First City. Your honest and straight forward attitude made you stand out. The room was always a play ground for you. You never cared what others thought you did your own thing. We had fun and many a laugh. You always had the hair done makeup on and was ready to have a few adult beverages after work. Love you and you will be missed. [Published in Houston Chronicle]
  4. Dennis, you were a very unique individual, and I am so happy that you were a friend, and co-worker for many years. I can still picture you always walking by the front desk, depending on your mood I would get a slight wave, head-nod, smirk, the finger, a “hi” or “bye”, and sometimes you’d even stop by for a quick chat. You were so funny and always made me laugh. You will be missed more than you ever know. Rest in Peace my friend. [Published in Inside Bay Area]
  5. Ed is such a special person, and I have wonderful memories of being his friend and co-worker. Ed had a way of making me laugh hysterically, with tears in my eyes, and I will treasure those moments, as well as the memories of working with him in the lab. [Published in The Times-Picayune]

Legacy.com reviews one million condolence messages each month. Each week, we highlight 5 condolences with a common theme.

About Katie

I joined Legacy.com in 2002 as a part-time content screener and now serve as Director of Operations, overseeing Legacy’s day-to-day operations (Guest Book screening, obituary processing, customer service, and client service). I grew up in California, the daughter of a psychologist and a minister. My parents instilled in me the importance of listening to and caring about others. One of the things I appreciate most about working at Legacy.com is that I am able to have a small part in easing people's pain during one of the most difficult times in their lives. In my life outside of Legacy, I enjoy baking treats (and bringing them to the office to share), playing the piano, reading, taking pictures, tending to our vegetable & herb gardens, trying out new restaurants and foods, spending time with my husband, Chuck (whom I met at Legacy) and our kids, Brett Jr. & Josie, and playing with our hound dogs, Mugsy and Bo Jangles.
