  1. I am so sorry to hear that my grade school, high school, and college friend has passed away. She was my science partner in high school (Bio I, II, and Chemistry) and my math relay buddy in all we did together for competitions for Mr. Shinn, and in college at Pitt we helped each other in several classes we were taking together. She was an awesome friend and will be greatly missed. Cork
