I loved Pam. If she was in the room, there would be smiles and giggles. She was a talented artist in her decorating and hairstyling. She loved the Lord and her family fiercely and fought a courageous battle with them by her side. My prayers are with you, Brian.

My dear friend Pam—you fought so hard to be well. I know you grew wearied and tired. I will remember you as friend that I was able to talk to about everything. I loved sitting in the breezeway just chatting. You taught me about your many plants and flowers. You will be missed but I will see you again. Love and prayers for all your loved ones.
