This is all Obama set fault. He has been promising universal health care from years. Where is it? When health care is at the whim of employers, innocent people die.

We were fortunate to have had Pam organizing a charter for us on the Airship. I'm so sad to see this news. She truly was a unique lady, full of enthusiasm for her job, her co-workers and the airship. I had wondered about all the folks at Airship Ventures when I heard that sadly they had to shut down. They seemed such a close team, genuinely thrilled to be doing something so unusual. This must be awful for them after losing their jobs and their airship.

Pam was one of the most vivacious and fun individuals I've met in a long time. She was unpretentious, selfless, and always considered others before herself. I was blessed with the opportunity to drive her to a couple of doctor appointments. They were long days for Pam, but she made them days of fun for me. She kept her spirit up until she fell asleep; that sista could fall asleep during a car ride in a minute; I loved that about her. She was all that and a bag of chips! I will truly miss her.
