a tribute to June Osborne
When I began working with her in 1998, I fell in love with her enthusiasm, patience and Texas accent. Because she and my boss shared the same name, we began calling her Tex, and that's how she signed off on her e-mails. Reading her articles and columns reinforced my affection for this wise, generous woman who indulged my request for a blog-erview and gave wonderful hugs when we finally met.
I'm very sad to type that June's health challenges got the better of her this month. She died peacefully on Aug. 15.
In honor of June, WildBird asks her friends, colleagues and readers to send short reminisces to ahooper AT bowtieinc DOT com. Please send contributions by Sept. 4, understanding that we reserve the right to edit for length and clarity.
Please be so kind as to share this invitation with other birders. Thank you.
