Default 2004 Accord V6 Power Steering pump whines when cold

I took my daughter to the bus the other morning. The power steering was making a terrible whine ( about 18 degrees out) My daughter says it has been doing it a while and mom ignored it.

I take the car back to my garage. I check the reservoir. It is near empty and has foam bubbles in the bottom. The power steering is making a whine and a ticking noise.

I add about 2/3 of a bottle of genuine honda fluid to reservoir which fills it the brim. I drive the car to wrk about 8 miles. It sounds much better.
At end of day when car is cold, it sounds terrible again.
I check reservoir in my garage. About half of it has puked. A huge mess.

My friend who knows cars tells me the pump probably got air in it and ate it itself.
He advises me to change the pump.

I have not identified a leak.
