Pam was an amazing woman. I got to share a choir stand with her for a while in the All Saints choir, and it was a priviledge. Pam quietly showed me how to be devoted to God and to serve the church despite hurdles that come our way. Her dedication to God and her relationship with Tony gave me images that encourage me to this day.

I loved Pam's forthrightness and spunk, and the smile that lit her up as well as those around her. The way she endured pain with patience and without complaining were gifts to everyone who got the chance to be around her.

Memory Eternal, Pam!
