Condolences for Lambert E. Bright
I was a co-worker of Lambert’s’ on 4th floor Love Library from 1997-2009. I didn’t work directly with him but I knew right away he was the wise ‘owl’. When our director Donna Liss left in 2002 for Kansas we had a going away celebration. Not your typical going away party. My coworker, Mary Lohse and I orchestrated a little ‘skit’ of the Wizard of Oz. Of course Lambert was chosen as the ‘Great Wizard of Oz’! Not surprising at all, he made a large ‘wizard’ head and and shared very wise words with Donna and the rest of the ‘cast’, our coworkers on 4th. The normally very quiet and not often outspoken wizard gave a great performance as his part in our office cast. I have worked ‘remotely’ with him as he developed projects for the NeSIS system, I was one of a few that reviewed the security on his projects. I will miss his smile and wit.
Celebrating the life of a wonderful man and mourning his passing with you. Sending healing prayers to all of Lambert’s family.
Sandy, Curt, Randy and families of Lambert Bright, we are very sorry for your loss and are thinking of you all at this difficult time. You are in our thoughts, prayers and always in our hearts. Mike and Chris
