I was privileged to be her student and her friend. She allowed me to call her
"Pat Bliss" or in moments of meeting deadlines on the Warrior staff, simply
"PBW". She was one of those rare teachers whose lessons stay with you for
life, because they were, in fact, life lessons. Barbie Peters and I worked on her
husband Sherman's first run for political office, making posters and handing
out flyers and PBW and Sherman kindly credited Barbie and I for getting him elected, we knew we hadn't but it made us feel awfully good to think so. I send
my sincere condolences to her family on the loss of this truly great woman.
