Losing a colleague
December 17th, 2008 7:23 AM
I don't know about you but when you lose a family member or friend it's hard to recover. In the past 2 weeks I lost a colleague.  I would have told people that Pam Davis was my friend and I believe she was but our relationship began as colleagues.  She was a happy, warm and upbeat person.  The kind of person people want to be around.  She was the first to offer to help and always had a bright new idea to share.  She owned the Real Estate Books in the Long Beach, Huntington Beach area and had recently decided to move to Fort Collins, CO.  We were sad at her leaving but excited for her because she was excited about her new adventure.  Having moved here from Colorado I knew what she could expect and we talked about that.  She was thrilled to be going and although we were sad, we were thrilled for her.  The accident that took her life days before she was to leave was a fluke - but isn't that why they call them accidents?  At her memorial service her best friend spoke of their friendship.  It was a lovely service.  When I left the church I called her friend knowing I would get her voice mail and left her a message.  I told her that when I leave this world, I hope I have just 1 friend that speaks so joyfully, lovingly and from deep in their soul about our relationship.  Later that day I was in a shop picking up a Christmas gift I had ordered and there was a sign that said "Friends are like angels without any wings, Blessing our lives with the most precious things".  Pam was an angel.  We'll all miss her.  I apologize because this isn't about the real estate market - but it really is.  Friendships in this business through the tough markets and the good, are enduring.  Pam and Nannette are proof of that.
