On the Retirment of Jane Sekulski

For long our science's been at the forefront
Because computers allowed us to confront
Complex projects that for ordinary people
Are quite simply just not doable.
We were lucky that in the 80's Jane came,
To help those with programs to tame.
For 30 years she's been quite selfless
Working away in a windowless office,
Quietly, year after year, always the same,
Not for aggrandizement or for fame.
We'll miss her kindness and generosity,
Her competence without any pomposity.
While her leaving is for us a sadness,
We wish her a future filled with gladness.
