I was saddened to hear the news this past week about the passing of a dear friend Pam Whaley. Pam was a graduate of the class of 1977 who I met while we attended Vista Del Rio Jr. High. We were best friends all through high school and worked together at The Carousel Snack Bar in the Mall of Orange. We stayed in touch off and on through the years but lost track of each other about 10 years ago. Pam lost her battle with cancer while living in New Orleans with her boyfriend who loved her very much. RIP my friend.
