May the wonderful memories and loved you shared with Pandora help to ease your pain during this extremely difficult time. We worked together at Nomeco and went back to our parent company when Nomeco relocated their offices to Texas - neither one of us wanted to leave out Jackson roots. Pandora always had the most beautiful smile which would light up the room and always had a kind word for everyone. I feel very blessed to have had her in my life. She was loved by many and will be very much missed. You will be in my thoughts and prayers Terry, Tiffany, Tyler and family.

Pandora and I met at a nail salon where I did her eyelashes. I introduced myself and told her how gorgeous she was. From that day forward, we grew to be close friends. Such a wonderful and kind spirit. Beautiful smile and always flawless. Oh how I will miss her. Speechless I must say.

May God cover the family with strength, comfort, and continuous love. I love you all. My family and I send our condolences. God bless.

How sad to hear of Pandora’s passing. I worked with her at Consumers Energy and loved talking with her. She had so much energy, charm, and class. We would talked about spiritual things and she truly shined God’s love in her actions. She will be missed!
