    I had the chance to be Mendy’s first boss at Michelin, as she was my admin at TCAR/T. I had never seen such a nice person, altruistic, always dedicated to others. She brought a lot to my Team, and to me.
    Her behavior and mindset was the same in her personal life. I know she did a lot for her whole family.
    I will keep in mind all the good moments of fun we spend together, especially during TCAR/T offsites, and I will keep Mendy in my heart.
    Sincere condolences to her family, and to Tom in particular, who I have met a couple of time.

    Mendy she was straight to the point, open to change, hard worker but most of all she genuinely cared about her family friends and co workers. She would always find the positive outlook on life and pray for those in need. I am glad to have been apart of her friends chain as we woke many times about family and praying for those who need it. One day we will meet again in Heaven my friend until then fly high and enjoy those wings!
