Our piece, In Remembrance Of Cory Clack-Streef, brought this kind note:
I feel compelled to offer you a note a thanks for your remembrance of Cory Clack-Streef.
Most of my peers in export development working for the 22 Northeast and Mid-West Departments of Agriculture knew Cory because Faye Clack Communications was the Canadian contractor with which we worked through Food Export Northeast and Food Export Mid-West.
Although we were notified of her passing through a sad but necessary e-mail, your comments provided a greater meaning and depth. I forwarded your column to someone who in turn forwarded it to dozens of more people involved in our industry.
I just wanted to take a moment to thank you and recognize the value of the Perishable Pundit, not only for your brave and earnest opinions, but also for making the most of the instantaneous technology of the Internet.
Normally this kind of information filters out days or weeks after events. But it was a great service I think that you provided, helping to bring immediacy and depth to an immensely sad event that caught many people by surprise.
Cory will be remembered fondly.
