Pam and I were friends. We met at Wilson Tecnical School and studied together, both older adults going back to school again, this time Nursing School! We laughed, worried, cried, and encouraged each other! After graduation, we worked together as public Health Nurses. She was such a kind, smart, enthusiastic person! Rest in peace dear friend !
