I had the pleasure to work with Pam at KC. She will be greatly missed. She always talked about her grandsons and family and she was always able to spot my car either going to or from work or just recently on a trip back from the mountains. She was a very brave lady whom I shall miss greatly. May God bless and keep her memories for ever in your hearts.

To the Ailshie family, I am so sorry for loss of your mother, Pam spoke of you three very often and I learn sometime ago that she loved her children very much and was proud of each one of you. And she was so proud to be a grandmother as well, they were the light of her life. I work with Pam on her team at kc and over the years got to know her and call her my friend, she will be miss greatly at work and I will miss her as well.Pam was a good person, I pray that you three will find comfort and hope from the Lord, in the days ahead.
