Michelle and Val,
I cannot say how saddened I was to learn of Pam's passing. I had to read the obituary over again to be sure that it was her. Please accept my deepest condolences to you and your family. Although I had not seen Pam in years, I do remember, many years ago, when we all would get together and just laugh. I will remember Pam that way. I will light my peace flame this evening in her memory.
