In Memoriam

In Memoriam Column Comes to GAPNA Newsletter

by Cynthia Gerstenlauer

The Historical Committee has proposed an “In Memoriam” column for the GAPNA Newsletter to remember and honor the memory of a GAPNA member who has died.

Submissions by any GAPNA member or chapter would be considered. This is an opportunity to pay tribute to your colleague and share her or his life with GAPNA members.

Submitters should consider writing about the person’s life and career, role and contributions to your chapter or GAPNA, and the qualities, values, passions, and achievements embodied by the member; what you enjoyed about the member; causes or organizations the person supported; etc.

It is a meaningful way to show your love and gratitude for a deceased colleague and to celebrate his or her life.

This tribute could potentially be shared with loved ones as a remembrance. If possible, please submit a picture along with your written tribute of the person who has passed.

“When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure.”
