To: Karen Koehler
Re: Last Email
My tumors are crushing my throat and my airway. This is my last mail to you. You have been special to me for a long time. But at the time I made impressions upon you, I had no idea, how important a few encouraging words could mean. Seems same with Haskell.
You have been so supportive of me over the last few years.
Could you sneak "what would tom chambers say" into a little of your social writing.
More importantly, you have made me proud to be your mentor. You have a "Kick Ass" approach without going to the "take no prisoners" extreme used by the defense. And you have showed them that just because you are a woman does not mean you cannot be a terrific trial lawyer.
I am at complete peace right now.
At 7:30 p.m. on December 11, 2013, Tom Chambers passed away. Rest in Peace dear Tom.
