Pam had a heart of gold. She not only looked after her family she always took care of her friends and welcomed them in anytime. I am fortunate to have had her as a friend. I will cherish the wonderful memories we had. My favorite memory is of the laughter we shared. I love my dear friend Pam and I will be keeping the family in my prayers.

I don't know where to begin...Pam, you were my first cousin, but you were like a sister and my very first friend. I love you like no one will ever know. We shared the best of times and the worst of times. You and Larry helped me in so many ways. You helped save my marriage for which I will be forever grateful. You helped me with Matt and Jesse, for that I will be forever grateful. And you treated Greg like a brother and for that he will be forever grateful. This message is so hard for me to write. I shed tears of sorrow for you now, but hopefully they will turn to tears of joy when we meet again standing in front of God's good grace. Rest in peace my cousin, my sister, my friend. Please hug daddy for me. Love always, Terrie.

I have many fun memories with Pam, my most fondest one was when she decided she was going to throw me a surprise 21st birthday party at her house. There was never a dull moment with her around she could definitely keep you laughing for hours! From the first time I ever had the pleasure of meeting her she always made me feel welcome in her home like I was one of her own children. She was absolutely one of a kind with a huge heart and such a gentle kind soul that will never be forgotten. May you Rest In Peace sweet Lady!

Not so long ago I met Pam for the 1st time last year though you would never have thought it was. From the 1st hello to christmas and every email or phone call after (accidentally calling my phone instead of David's) I never once felt like a stranger. She opened her home to me, opened her arms to me, and opened her heart while helping open mine. When it felt like the rest of the world was against you, she never had one bad thing to say about you and that's a beautiful and rare find in this day and time. If there is one thing about this wonderful lady that is for certain, you could tell she loved her children more than anything, and if you couldn't tell just listen to the dozens of voice messages and i.m.'s I have of her asking about David or just wanting to say she loved him and was thinking about him again. You are truely missed sweet lady, I'm so glad to have been given the chance to know a heart like yours.

My memory of you is when I use to go with you every Friday to pay bills and we would go see Larry and John at work. This was when John worked with Larry. You took me in and treated me like I was your blood sister. I have so many memories of the time we spent together and I will forever cherish them. I am going to miss you Pamela, but I know that you are in a better place and that we will see each other again one day.
