ZAM mourns the passing of our longtime Copy Editor.
Yesterday, we learned that our friend and ZAMís longtime copy editor, Judy Freeman (known on our sites as Looker), passed away from lung cancer. Judy had been with ZAM since October 16th, 2007. From the start, Judy worked to clean up the scribbling of our various writers, journalists, and editors. Many of us were fortunate to work with Judy, relying on her expertise to hold us up and shine the brightest light on our creative work. She never wanted to be in the spotlight, but quietly mentored a surprising number of people on the front lines of ZAM News. Chances are if you ever read ZAM news you've read something she touched. She will be dearly missed by many here at Zam, and many that have moved on to other endeavours.
Thank you, Judy, for the time that you spent with us at ZAM. It ended far sooner than we all ever expected.
