Don, my heartfelt sympathy to you and your family. I recall many fond memories years ago with you and Pam at Oak Grove. She was such a warm and caring lady, and always had that pretty smile on her face. I so loved to hear her sing, and it was a real treat to hear you and her harmonize together. Heaven's choir has gained another beautiful voice and soul. Prayers and comfort to you and your family.

Don, there are no words to tell you how very sorry I am on the loss of your beloved Pam. She truly was one of the kindest and sweetest people that I have ever known, and even beyond that, she was a true Christian light for the world to see. I always loved hearing her sing when I was at Oak Grove....but I know that her beautiful voice is now singing in heaven with God’s angels. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Don, Clark and Ansley, My heartfelt prayers are with you all during this time and will continue in the days to come, SO many sweet memories of better times, the times we worked together at Oak Grove, VBS, teaching, working with youth, and all those fall festivals, Fun times at the beach each year and the joy and laughter we shared. I will remember her sweet smile and her laughter, I will remember how much she adored all of you and I remember all the beautiful music she blessed us with over the years. Her love of God and service to Him was evident in all she did and I will miss her so much but sweet memories of her will remain in my heart. May God bless you all! Much Love! Jean

Don, Clark, Ansley, & All the Family,

We have so many fond memories of Pam and the many good times with the Brantley family. First as young couples before any of us had kids, then as Clark and Ansley came along and all our families grew. The church activities, the beach trips, and the many good times we all shared. Through it all, Pam was right in the middle of things with a nice laugh and generous smile. She always used her gift for music for the Glory of God and the comfort of others. Even in recent years when she had various health challenges she continued to serve as our Oak Grove Choir Director. She loved God, her family, and Carolina Basketball. Well, with regard to that last love, I guess no one is perfect! Right Don? 😊You are all in our thoughts and prayers. God's perfect peace will be with you and strengthen you in the days ahead. We loved Pam and we will continue to love you all. God Bless You!
