    Pam was a sweet girl. We sat through ball games together. She was always supporting her nieces and nephews.

    I went to high school with Pam. I didn’t know her well then. But we have been friends on Facebook for a few years. I just want you to know my heart is sad to lose a friend. I’m so sorry for your loss.

    Jenifer and family,
    I was Pamela’s close friend for 38 years, and always held her as an example of Christlike love, endurance, faith, and forgiveness. I know of the pains she suffered, and I went through many of her ups and downs with her. She never gave up. Family and friends kept her alive, because she always felt that someone needed her help. I’m glad that she finally is at peace, and I hope that she receives all that she desired in her heart. I love you Pamela. Cindi
