    I appreciate the opportunity to use this form of communication. Tina was a beloved coworker at Oppenheimer and taught me important lessons in self-honesty and levity under stress. Her love and loyalty to Stan and the rest of her family were exemplary. She was like an anchor, and I enjoyed visiting her after I moved on to other jobs.
