    Pat & I grew up together & after I went to Chicago for nurses training she followed a year later for xray tech. training at the same hospital. We spent many hours together while there & said good-by when she left to marry Lester. We kept in touch over the years & got together for lunch a few times until she was no longer able to drive do to health issues. I have many good memories of our years together & will miss that Christmas card & note I would be getting from her this year. I know this is a little late so I hope you get this note. I have been having some health problems so don't get things done in a timely manor. My sincere sympathy to your family. Bea Nieubuurt
