Sharyn Light

Saddened to come across this YouTube obituary tonight after searching out some VMS LA employees I could not locate on FB. I worked with Sharyn Light in the late 1990's. She started off in sales and ended up as our GM after Mona had left. RIP Sharyn Light. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=66GS2K__8qk

Doing some spring cleaning yesterday and found this old VMS-LA Holiday Greetings from the later 1990s. Judging by the staff signatures and my comments I want to say this would be most likely be 1996 or 1997.

I was out and about at the Goodwill today and spotted this in the electronics section. Any ex-VMSer who worked as a monitor or transcriber should recognize this!

It is with great sadness that I learned this morning of the recent passing of Dorothy Dee Fa'aita. Dorothy worked in the VMS LA billing depart around 2001 and on. I believe she had transferred from the VMS SF office. She will be sorely missed as I worked along side her and she would make me laugh all day long.

Also due to health issues and spending a great deal of time in the hospital I was unable to post the passing of Anna-Liza De La Cruz who worked at VMS Los Angeles in the billing dept. She worked in the billing dept and passed away in her sleep in late August. There are no details on her passing. She will be missed. That is Steve Shuhiro on the left who also worked at VMS LA and ended up marrying Anna-Liza. Condolences to Steve and the family of Anna-Liza.

Wayne Static Dead at 48

Saddened to break the news that Wayne Wells is no longer with us. He worked at VMS Los Angeles during the 1990's as a monitor and left the company after his band Static-X (formerly just Static) got signed to a major record label deal. He left VMS LA and changed his name to Wayne Static. I have no details on the passing of Wayne Wells. His brother, Jeff Wells, worked at the VMS Chicago office. My condolences to Wayne's family and friends. - Eugene Sotela. See the following link. http://loudwire.com/wayne-static-dead/

We're shocked and saddened to report that Wayne Static has died at the age of 48.

Jon Qua and I paid a visit to Bob Seal in his Hollywood home. Bob has many fond memories of working at the VMS Los Angeles office and we shared many jokes and stores. Bob was a transcriber at the Los Angeles office for many years. He suffered a brain aneurism over 10 years ago and his doctors told his wife, Nancy, that he would most likely never be able to sit up and move around freely. He along with the help of Nancy defied these odds and is now able to walk around and move his arms and legs and get around and speak. His long term memory is very sharp and he could remember working at VMS like it was just yesterday. He says "hello to all" and sends his love.

Community Comes Together in Memory of Fallen Marathon Runner

Very surreal to see this on KTLA-TV Los Angeles regarding the recent passing of Amir Teymori and how his family has pulled together to run the LA Marathon on his behalf as it was his intention to be there this coming Sunday. http://ktla.com/2013/03/13/community-comes-together-in-memory-of-fallen-marathon-runner/

A La Crescenta man was planning to run this weekend's L.A. Marathon for charity. Following his tragic death last week, his loved ones are going to help him finish that race. Amir Teymouri has been prepping for a while now, getting ready to run

RIP Amir H. Teymouri (pictured here on the far right) alongside Jeff Miller and Jon Qua.

Upon learning the news of Mark William's passing I had to go through my photo albums and put this one up. This is from December, 1989. After the VMS Holiday party a number of us all headed back to the office to continue our drinking and having a good time. I knew that all this Christmas cheer and Merry times, I'd found my new home! RIP - Mark Williams.

Just learned the news that Mark Williams, long time sales rep in the VMS Los Angeles office, passed away on Oct. 18th, 2011. Very shocking news.

Found this today in my storage unit and it still had a lot of mints in it! I use to keep these handy at my desk in case I got to yapping with someone! I didn't want to have a "yuck mouth".

A very old pic of me at VMS LA around fall of 1989 when I first started! I totally remember those small monitors. The LA office handed them out years later when they upgraded and I took 2 home for my mom! I see Bob Seal and Mikey in the background-probably doing "verbals". Funny how those "terms" are coming back to me!
