Rest well and I know you and Dot will watch over all of us. Love ? You Tammy

  • I thought about Dr. Hatchett and decided to seek her out. I was saddened to learn that she had passed. I met Dr. Hatchett as a graduate student at Wayne State University (Detroit, MI). While there, she took me under her wing. I greatly appreciated her mentorship, as well as her generosity. She allowed me the opportunity to serve as a co-author on several of her manuscripts; as a result, I earned tenure.

    Thank you Dr. Hatchett. Your support has been immeasurable.
