You all are in my thoughts and prayers. She was a sweet, loving mom and friend. She always reached out to me while I was going through rough times in my life. Pamela enjoyed seeing my family as it grew throughout the years on fb as I enjoyed seeing hers as well. God bless her family and may her RIH 💕
