Last Summer, while vacationing at the Cape, a stranger helped to rescue our 6 year old son from a dangerous situation. It turns out that the “stranger” was actually from the same small town and I am a firm believer that she was a Heaven-sent guardian angel that day. We nominated Pamela Murphy, of the Agawam Fire Department, for a Hometown Hero Award from the Western Massachusetts American Red Cross, and she will be honored for her selfless act of heroism on March 17th. Amber Wakely, Editor of Go Local Magazine, tells the whole story perfectly here in her “Hometown Hero” article in the March 2017 issue. Pam, we love you, thank you and salute you! Here’s the link, find the story on page 41-42.
