Mike, Angela , Alex and Alaina : Pam was a wonderful sweet Catholic Lady who was always kind to me. I was blessed to have met her through attending volleyball and basketball games that her granddaughters played in. She was always supportive of her family even though I'm sure there were times that she was not feeling well. She had a beautiful honest smile that radiated her face constantly. She was much loved and will be greatly missed. May she rest in the Peace of Christ with all of our loved ones who have passed away. Reg Rogers, St. Edward's Parish, Catholic High Class of 1977

How do I begin to share with you our wonderful friendship. It started in the 6th grade at Holy Souls school. I was new to the school and Pam was so sweet to me. We would walk home from school every day bundled up during cold weather or shedding our sweaters in warmer weather and the whole time just chatting up a storm. We lived only about 3 blocks from each other which was so perfect for continued visiting and playing Chinese checkers which she introduced to me. She had a beautiful pink decorated bedroom with frilly curtains that I’m sure her momma made for her and we would stay in there and visit and play for hours. We continued our lives together by attending Mt St Mary’s and some classes together and then again walking home together. Onto graduation and her bridesmaid on her wedding day. We spent days after that not walking home but when Angela was born we held and played with her. She was a server at my wedding and then I had my babies later than her Angela so between all of those busy days we saw less of each other. Occasionally we would see each other at events or weddings and catch up on our kids and by then her grand girls who she just was in awe of. They moved to Austin AR and we saw each other less but sent each other birthday cards for years and when she would find a newspaper clipping of a past event that was connected to me she would mail it along with a note. All these events and fun times will never be forgotten because Pam was there either in person or in my mind. She will forever be in my mind and heart ❤️

While our friendship was short, the memories of our times together will live on forever in my heart. Her smile, her wit, and green thumb were shared with me every time we were together. It was a honor to have Pam in my life and call her my friend. Praying for everyone during your time of loss, hurting with you for the space that she left.

My mom, Julia Counts, worked with Pam many years ago, I remember when we attended Pam’s wedding. Pam was always a sweet & kind person, my Mom thought the world of her. We knew of Pam’s struggle with MS, even though we lost contact with Pan, we often spoke of her & the TV station days. I’m sure my Mom met Pam at the gate if Heaven to welcome her. May God comfort Pam’s family, you will see her again.

Pam is what I call a sweet soul. I never remember her complaining but do remember her smile and positive attitude. She was such a help to me when I was librarian at St. Theresa. It was my first job after graduating and she was a great support to me. Mike and Angela and Grandaughters ,we were so blessed to have had her in our lives. I know you must have many great memories to comfort you now. God bless you.
