On July 4th we lost a precious and valuable friend of CID, Mardell Fuson.  Mardell spend most of her adult life dedicated to CID.  She worked for CID from 1976-2018.  She was a walking history book of the District and will be greatly missed.  As per her wishes, there will be no services but the family will be accepting donations in her name form Noah's Ark.  Everybody who knew Mardell knew of her love of her fur babies.
