George: Sharing with you and with FF followers my reflections with Jackie Hauser on the untimely passing of our friend, Diane.
It has taken 48 hours for me to process the terrible news that George Fritsma delivered to me on Monday. I thought by now that I would know what to say I still dont. Diane was someone special to me. I always felt we enjoyed a wonderful connection and camaraderie. She was always interested and interesting two great qualities that are rarely found together in one individual. I will miss her very much.
On behalf of everyone at Precision BioLogic, let me extend our deepest sympathies on the loss of our mutual colleague and friend.
