I hate to be the bearer of further bad tidings, but in learning about Melanie's death, we found out that Tiffany Ann Francis passed away on July 4th of 2002. When I inquired to her sister Melissa about what happened, she wrote back saying that Tiffany had been in poor health for quite a while and eventually died of pneumonia.
Faculty member Steve Mussack also passed away quite recently. From what I was told, he was on a hike with some students and suffered a heart attack.
With the anniversary of Tiffany's death approaching and Mr. Mussack's recent death, please keep these people's families and friends in your thoughts.
