Marcia Lott (aka Creta to your beloved Mom)
Thinking of you at this time. I have happy memories of sharing apartment 3G during those years at AMC. Shortie was a smart, fun-loving and caring woman who had such a positive impact on many lives and It was my good fortune that she was a part of those earlier years.
Sending "Lots" of love to you and yours.

I worked with Carol for many years at Etter Health Center. She was my Nurse Supervisor. Carol was brilliant. a great nurse, loved the students and cared about everyone. I will always remember the jokes we played on each other and her laugh. Carol was always upbeat and made our work place fun. Carol was a great help to me when I followed in her foot steps as nurse supervisor after her retirement. RIP Carol, Always a friend, Linda
