She was the violets in the pictures I colored.
Smiley faced stick men hung with magnets.

Her presence made my heart dance. With the laughter of children running through the grass on a warm summers day.

Their laughter
Like a flower. That reaches for the sun, only to wilt and die.

Her presence
Was the sun I could not bare to watch set.

Now she runs though velvet grass
And I hear her laughter beneath my violet skies.

To My Precious Loving Cousin,Pam
Words seem so meaningless at a time like this and yet as I sit here crying, trying to find the right ones to convey how much I shall miss you. Others say “Well God Needed Another Angel” and I say why my cousin Pam??? You have always been the strong one in times of sorrow,I can hear your voice telling me everything will be okay Peter. In times of laughter I could hear your laugh and a smile would appear on my face. I recall when my appendix erupted in the late 70’s and I was hospitalized,and the nurse informed me I wasn’t going to get out until I ate all of my meals. You smiled,put your finger to your lips to let me know I was to be quiet and then you proceeded to get rid or my lunch. The nurse came in and was so proud of me and it was definitely hard not to laugh as I looked at you knowing what we’d done. Then like the amazing cousin you were you came back at dinner time to repeat the gesture! You have always been the smart,strong,beautiful,loving,caring cousin, that no matter what you were going through always had or made time to listen to others. I see a lot have already commented on your hugs,so I shall not need to do that-but they were amazingly wonderful. So I will only add this, I will miss yours hugs,your smile,your warmth and caring ways. And I shall truly miss you FOREVER AND A DAY!!! Always,Peter

I first met Pam when I started working for Barleys in 2010. My first impression was of a kind and friendly person who made me feel welcomed. Thank you Pam for that. My thoughts and prayers are with your family. I know that your family was a very important part of your life. Pam you have left them and me with a lot of fond memories that we will cherish in our hearts forever. Yes, you will be missed but never forgotten. Rest in Peace my friend. Noelle ....

I’m so lost at words and so hurt that I didn’t get to see you before god decided to keep you as his own. But I do remember as a little girl going to your house and hanging out with the girls and you’d always feed us such yummy meals , I loved you as my own grandmother. May your soul rest easy . Always with love Sebastian & Nicole ❤️
