One of GFTâ€™s Charter members and long time Guam educator and resident, Patricia (Pat) Rankin is approaching the end of her life. She valiantly battled colon cancer but now has returned home to spend her final days surrounded by the memories of her life on Guam. For those who knew Pat, she was a strong willed, independent woman that was never afraid to stand up for what she believed in. All of us are in her debt for she had the fortitude and strength to help create this great union on Guam in 1965. Her nephew, Alan Rankin, states that the Nurses give her 2 weeks at the most but she could pass any day now. While she no longer has the strength to talk on the phone, Alan writes that he would be more than happy to read emails (firstname.lastname@example.org) of well wishes to her. God bless you Pat Rankin!!!
