I will miss Pam’s beautiful smile. Their family is the most loving family that I have ever known including the parents and grandparents.

Donnie....My heart absolutely goes out to you and yours. Pam made going to exercise a pleasure! With her big smile, loving soul, and fabulous music; she was always a pleasure to see each week. She laughed at me singing “ Love me like a man”(Bonnie Raitt). It was always a pleasure to see you there too, just like her. Thinking of you a lot during this time.

My sweet Memaw... so many memories and trips and seeing beautiful places and beautiful things, but the most beautiful was always you. Not just your appearance, but the love you carried was always shining through that smile we all know so well. My favorite times were when we would lay on the couch with my head in your lap and you scratching my back. You did it for me as a baby and even at 18, I loved those times we spent together and now I wish we could do it just one last time. I love you forever my best friend

Even almost 17 years after sitting in her classroom when I think of Mrs. McGinty I think of Melodies and Sunflowers. The power of a teacher like her ensured I carried my education far into the future and became a successful adult! I wont have to worry about my son struggling in algebra; I am armed with Mrs. McGinty's melodies to help him. McGinty Family--Be at peace, her love and memory will continue to be passed down to future generations. With Love from a former student--Brandy

Donny and Family,
We were so saddened to hear of Pam's passing and can only try to imagine your grief after this long battle. You have been and will continue to be in our prayers. We are so thankful that we know where she is and that we will all see her again! We remember meeting up with you and Pam in Winter Park (?) when you two came skiing - before kids!
Your Cousin and Brother & Sister in Christ,
Johnny and Sally Johnson

Donny, Melody & Maggie-
I have good memories living across the street from you for my entire childhood. The “good ole days” when neighbors were friends, watched out for one another, gathered for back yard barbecues, babysat each other’s kids. Like my sister said, I also remember Pam keeping a clean house and having a ton of energy. I remember that she had a big smile and beautiful eyes. My heart breaks for you during this time. I know that you will forever miss her so much, but being a Christian brings the promise of seeing her again for eternity. Cling to the Lord and to each other. You all are in my prayers. Much love, Rachelle

Pam was a very dear and special friend. She was the first person I met when I started work at ORHS . Meeting Pam was the beginning of a lasting friendship. I will always cherish the memories of the a great friend and will miss her greatly.

Although it’s been a while since I have seen Pam, I will never forget the special times that I had with her and Donny growing up with Melody. She was the most energetic and ambitious woman in my childhood...I will never forget the smell of her super clean house and how she ALWAYS made me and the girls wait outside or “walk around to the front” until her floors dried...and they always seemed wet..she loved to play Gordon Lightfoot and other very cool music while she cleaned...taking care of her family, her home, and herself were very important to her. She always fed us spaghettios...one of my favorite childhood memories was putting together a dance routine in the yard with the girls to “Like A Virgin” even though our parents weren’t too happy about the song choice!
Pam, Donny, Mel, and “Maggie Mae” will always have a very special place in my heart. We share this hope in Christ...we will see you again...in His time. Love, Amy
