Jennifer, Burke and Jeff,
I am so sad to hear about Pam’s passing.
She was a part of my life on and off since I was in my twenties. i met her when she was vice president of pta when Jennifer and Jamie were in first grade. We immediately liked each and and were fortunate to live in the same neighborhood. We walked together, traveled to Asheville and charleston. We shopped, and swapped recipes and loved crafts. I didn’t see her in her final days and I am sorry about that. I know you will miss her.

Jennifer, Burke, Geoffrey, I want you all to know how very very sorry I was to hear your mom had left the earth. She was so very special to me! Even though she and I hadn't talked in quite a long time, she was still a part of me. She taught me so many things about standing up for myself and not being a "Doormat" (her words) I am sure my husband would love to know where all that assertiveness came from. She was a very dear friend and a wonderful mentor to me. The world is such a finer place for her having been here, Love, and hugs to you all.
