Team,

As some of you know, we had very unfortunate news on Friday about one of our CST team members in Reston. Although a young man, Michael Young passed away Thursday night from natural causes.

Carolyn has been working with his family to help where we can (we also sent flowers to the family). Today we had a grief counselor in the office to meet with the team. Please let Carolyn know if you would like to speak with a grief counselor as well.

In these trying times, we all grieve differently. Please remember to lean on each other during these hard times. I find during these times I reflect most about my life and my current situation. Times like these remind us that we really do not know how much time we have on this great planet and to make sure you are doing what you love, with people you love, are enjoying every day, and honestly enjoying the journey.

I also want you all to think about the people in Texas. Hurricane Harvey is doing record damage and with over 40” of rain and more on the way, we need to support them however we can.

I appreciate and enjoy working with you all.

Enjoy the journey,

Russ
