John,
Sorry to hear your lovely wife (Pam) was called home. It was always so nice to run into you both at a thrift store now and then. Pam was always smiling and had the kindest words. My thoughts are with you.

Pam was a wonderful person. I worked with her at HSHS for several years. Pam was always generous, sweet, kind, and reliable. She was always willing to help out in any situation. Her laugh was contagious. Pam was a true great friend. God took her home to be an angel in his garden. Rest in peace my friend and fly as high as you are able to.

John,

I was so sad to see that Pam had passed. I have known Pam since 1967 when she started Radiology school.
I lost track of Pam and then had the pleasure of working with her again at Baylis in mammography.

Pam always had a smile, and was so kind to those that she worked with. I feel blessed to have known her.

She will be remembered with a smile on my face and praise on my lips. She was truly a lady.

God's blessings to you and the family in this time of grief.

John,

I feel so bad that Pam and I lost contact the last few years.
She was a smiley, loving woman. She was always so very kind to me and my family. I so enjoyed working with her and friendship. Seeing her obituary really hit me hard. It makes me cherish the time we have left here. Please know that having her in my life made an impact on me.

God Bless you and you family as you mourn her passing... don’t forget to celebrate her life too. Tell stories & laugh , she would like that.

John, Donnie, David, and family,
I have known Pam since 1975 when I moved to Springfield. I met her while working at Doctor’s Park. She truly was a kind and caring woman. My deepest condolences to the family.
