Topic - Renee Suzuki
Renee Suzuki wasn't looking at her phone. Gone to the grocery store, she left her husband, Kurt, and their 15-month-old daughter, Malia, in their East Bay home. She'd put the phone away for mere minutes. When she checked, her heart jumped. Seven missed calls from Kurt.
"I knew it was either the baby or he got traded," Renee said Sunday morning with a laugh — the type of good-natured laugh that can only come when exhaustion has rid you any other reaction.
