It is my sad duty to report that one of our coral-listers, Mary Roche, who
also used to work for us here at NOAA/AOML, has perished.  She was a very
cheerful, vivacious, nice lady who was quite the adventurous sort.  Those
of us who knew her will miss her.

I just received some bad news. Mary Roche, my graduate student, was killed
yesterday while hiking in New Mexico. She apparently lost her footing and
fell into a canyon. I will keep everyone informed about viewing and
funeral arrangements.
