    You were the first person that I encountered at UMES in September 1996 and I am forever grateful for God placing you in my path on that day. The Department of Natural Sciences will never be the same and I have no real reason to visit Carver Hall anymore. I can’t stop crying when I think of you, but because I know you loved the Lord, I am at peace. Rest well my sister/friend and know that you made a difference in the lives of many.

  • Victoria Volkis:

    Ms. Cottman was a face of the Department of Natural Sciences in UMES, a very good friend and colleague and really a woman with a big heart opened to help others. I cannot imagine our front desk without her. She will be always missed here. My prayers for her family and friends. Rest in peace, Ms. Cottman.

    I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

    You are an example for those of us living on earth, of what angels in heaven are really like~

    Love you so much
