I am Sr. Mary Nelle Gage who worked with the Southeast Asian Refugees in the 1970's, '80's, and 90's and admired Mrs. Poc so very much. Her former supervisor, Mrs. Laurie Bagan-Colorado State Refugee Coordinator, died in September and I wanted to contact Sorya to make sure she knew and see if she could go to the memorial Oct. 28. I am so very sorry to learn of Sorya's passing. She has been a great gift to the Colorado refugee program. I wish I had known of her death so that I could have attended her service. Please accept my heart-felt condolences.
My happy thought is that she was at the heavenly gates to welcome Laurie.
