I have only gotten to know Pam within the last three years being neighbors here in New Smyrna Beach... but her friendship has meant the world to me and I will miss her tremendously. Her friendly good nature never faltering was such the sign of a strong, loving woman. She will be missed by many I know.
My sincerest condolences to Bill and all their families and friends.

So sorry that we all have lost a great friend and union leader. Pam signed me up with AFSCME back in the 80’s when we were both employed by the state. It would be very difficult to try and figure out how many people have benefitted from the hard work, this fireball of a woman did through the years. She will be greatly missed by everyone she ever came in contact with. Love and respect to the entire family. Babs
