    Dear Friends and Family of Coralene,
    I was a psychology grad student with Coralene at OSU, where we worked together to improve community crisis and drug treatment services. I knew her as a sensitive, caring person who always worked hard to help troubled individuals and improve her community. Unfortunately, I lost touch with her after I moved to the Bay Area where she had grown up, but she had been a dear friend. I am very sorry to hear of her passing. The world is dimmer for it. You have my deepest sympathy for your great loss.
