Re:  Last Email

Hi Karen.

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.
