Dear Janet, Randy, and Beth,
There are no words that will heal this heartache for you We miss Pam in the alto section at choir, also John with the basses.I have been praying for Pam ever since I heard she had breast cancer. I have fought the same battle, myself, so I know what she went through. I thank the Lord for Gary and the joy he brought into her life. Even though words are ineffective, prayer in the powerful name of our Lord Jesus Christ is amazingly helpful. Thank you Lord for bringing Pam and John into eternal fellowship with the Father and Holy Spirit through your sacrificial blood. Without, you, Oh Lord, where would we be?

My thoughts and prayers are with the family and Gary during your bereavement. Pam was a special, sincere,and caring friend. She visited and comforted me during the loss of my mother in 2005. I tried to comfort her during the loss of her father. We shared many confidential conversations at Patrick Copeland. She was excited about meeting Gary,the dream of her life.Pam touched my heart in a personal and private way. May God bless and comfort you.

Dearest Janet and Family,
Pam's passing came as such a shock to me. As a past member of Trinity Lutheran Church and a fellow choir member, I will always remember her wonderful warmth and loving nature. Our Christian world has been blessed by her life! Pam will remain in all of our hearts forever! Let us rejoice in her eternal life with Our Father and thank him for her life with us!

I attended Emmanuel-St. Michael grade school with Pam...although I have not kept in touch, I have thought about her throughout the years. Her picture looks just as I remembered her in school! She was always a kind and considerate classmate and I'm sure that followed her into adulthood. May you rest in God's loving arms!

Pam was a coworker and friend for the past 12 years. She had a beautiful smile and was a very caring, compassionate person. She was so excited about her summer wedding. My thoughts and prayers are with the Bardonner family and her fiance, Gary, during this very sad time.
