It is with deep deep sadness that I extend my condolences on Pam's passing. She was a wonderful teacher, much loved and respected by her students, and colleague whose positive outlook, welcoming demeanor, beautiful smile, and lyrical laugh lifted the spirits of all lucky enough to be part of her world. I liked nothing better than hearing her and Linda Brown's laughter, at the end of a long school day, echo through the halls of Varnum Brook. Twenty-eight years together was not enough. Rest In Peace, dearest Pam.

Dear Pam and Family.... It's so apparent, the love you both gave and received in your lifetime. You have left your family with many good memories. And for me, I'm left with some special memories with you at Varnum Brook Middle School on that second floor, on both ends of the building. You were a pretty nice person. Hey, I wrote you a poem for your retirement party...I don't do that for just anybody. Thanks for the memories... As Bob Hope would have said... Erik.

I went to grammar school with Pam from grades 1-8 in Harrington Park and then high school at NVRHS and NVOT. Our parents became friends through Our Lady of Victories RC Church and we spent some great family evenings at the Nesis home. Mr. Nesi taught my father Harry, my brothers Dave and Paul and me how to sing “Darktown Strutters Ball” in Italian. I still remember the words today 60 something years later. I lost touch with Pam for many, many years but we got together again when Pam and her husband started spending time in Bradenton, Florida during the winters. Pam was a sweetheart and my condolences go out to her family. She will be missed.

Pammy's mother was my father's sister. I will always cherish the memories that I have of my beautiful cousin Pammy. Beautiful is the one word that I have to describe her. She had a sweet, angelic face and a beautiful smile. But beyond her physical beauty, she had an inner beauty and calmness that made her a joy to be around. I wish that I didn't live on the opposite coast, and could have spent more time with her as I became an adult. I can only imagine the pain that her family is going through right now, and I am so sorry for their loss. She is in my prayers.

With love,

Cousin Laurie Rappa

Pam and Bob, Maureen and I will always cherish the time that we spent with you in Florida and at the Cape. Beside being a wonderful person and friend you are my angel for steering me to Dr. Fernandez, who saved my life.

With Love,
Jim and Maureen Bosco
