    I had the benefit and pleasure of being influenced by Don Bloom as a student of pharmacy, and an employee of the Purdue Student Pharmacy. I credit him as my most positive influence during my time at Purdue, from 1983 to 1987. He personally offered me a paid position as a student, without an application or request, and stated it was due to my financial need and academic record. I will always remember him fondly and be grateful for his influence. What a kind man. Sincerely, Laura Griffith
