It is with great sadness that we share that our Project Manager of many years, Carrie Silver, has passed away after a long battle with cancer. Carrie began working at Sliced Bread eight years ago and brought an incredible joy, energy, and commitment to every project that she tackled. You may have interacted with her tangentially when discussing billing or hours on projects, but for us at Sliced Bread she was a critical component of our family. She was an incredibly kind, caring, and thoughtful individual who not only made sure that our critical weekly status reports came out on time, but also that everyone’s birthday was remembered and that we all ate lunch. And through it all, Carrie was funny. She saw humor in every situation and her stories and laughter were a regular part of daily life in our office. From Carrie’s personal blog:
I DO have something that I’m really good at. I’m good at being a friend. If you’re pissed about something and need to vent, I’ll listen. If you need me to stop by your house and water your plants, I’ll do it. If you’re sick and need me to get you something at the store, I’ll do it. If you need me to walk your dog or watch your dog or your kid, I’ll do it. Along the lines mentioned above, I like making people happy. I like being this way.
Carrie persevered through many challenges with incredible grace and fearlessness. She leaves behind her devoted husband and a lovely seven year old son. We can’t describe how much we will miss her.
