selfless…Pam Dashiell

I can’t even put into words now deeply saddened I was to hear of Pam’s passing.

She spent much of her life both pre Katrina and especially post Katrina fighting to save our wetlands as well as the closure of the MrGo and the rebirth of the Lower 9.

Pam and I schlepped through Washington D.C as well as New York together. She had some stories to tell.
