So I am finally writing this today… Life has taken me on a new journey (like so many of you), having to adjust to a new way of life, and therefore I have not kept in touch with WAB friends and colleagues over the last few years. This link popped up last month. I was shocked, to say the least. My first reaction was denial like it did not happen… However, I started to reminisce about my WAB days…

There is a reason why the universe has put people together in our journey and I am grateful that Murray and Sam came into my life. Murray, I remember how we discuss you "taking over" the admissions office (sounds so trivial in retrospect) and how chill yet thoughtful you were about it. I remember our admissions discussions, easy-going, hassle-free and straight to the point with always some laughter about an event or just life at WAB. Thank you for your professionalism, your collegiality and your down to earth attitude.

Sam, I'm not sure where you are in the world but know that you were huge support when I needed to talk. Love the no nonsense, no bullshit attitude… I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your sound advice and great laughter when I needed it… Lots of hugs, Caroline.
