You have my sincerest condolences. Rochelle was a great friend, terrific coworker and one of my beloved retirees. I was always encouraged by her big, bright smile, her wonderful attitude as well as her ability to reframe positive circumstances and people in a positive light - a gift so few have. Whenever I need to reframe, I always say I'm channeling my inner Rochelle. What an indelible mark she left on my life!
Love and prayers,
I worked closely with Rochelle during her tenure at First Union and was blessed to experience her enthusiasm and her warmth. Meals with Kathy and Rochelle were always the highlight of my trips to Atlanta.
Rochelle's contributions to the EAP field were many and her friendship was a gift she gave so freely. Condolences to Kathy and to all in Rochelle's family.
I recall the day I interviewed Rochelle and hired her at First Union for the first EAP position in the Georgia office. Her smile and warmth won me over. After our First Union days we stayed in touch having dinner annually with our buddy Lizzie. An angel in heaven!
My deepest sympathy to Kathy, family and friends
Rochelle, we love you as you loved others, with your whole heart
I worked with Rochelle at First Union/Wachovia in the Employee Assistance Program and I'll never forget her welcoming, gentle spirit nor her constant smile and calming presence. Rochelle was a joy to work with, and an inspiration to me on my journey out of the closet, though I never told her. I'll never forget a joyous reunion we shared, years after we were coworkers, as I marched with my church at Atlanta's Pride Parade and she called my name and we hugged and laughed together. My sincerest condolences to her family and friends, especially Kathy. She will be sorely missed!
