When I was at Sears we had a manager pass away from breast cancer. Most of the staff went to the funeral.
Not long after I left Burger King a woman I had worked with also passed away due to cancer. EVERYONE went to that one. Corporate even came. I was away at school and come home for it.
Also, while at Sears, a coworker lost her 10 day old son to ancephaly. (sp?) She finished out her maternity leave and was given a thing of flowers the day she came back. Some of my coworkers went to the funeral. I didn't. It was out of state and I didn't know her well at the time. We really bonded after that. We understood each other. None of my babies were born alive, but that pain of losing a child was still there. For his first birthday I bought her a figurine of an angel holding a baby. At the bottom it said "Mom and baby angel." I also gave her a card.
Thanks to Jaidynsmum for my siggy!

About 3 or 4 years ago we lost one of our colleagues to cancer. Everyone knew and loved her. The school held a service for staff to remember her and everyone was on tears, but the thing that always stuck with me was that there were happy tears remembering her impact on the place as well as sad tears for missing her.
