    Everyone in Pam’s family are in mine and my wife Buni’s prayers! So glad you and Pam had a beautiful life of 51 years together. Buni and I are both 1965 graduates from our high school and will soon be married for 53 years so we are well aware of how quickly time flies by and we are glad that you both obviously made the most of the time you had together! God bless! 1 Peter 5:7. Rev. Allen Weller

    My heart is heavy with the loss of my life long friend. I will miss knowing she is no longer with us but am so glad to know she will be in a new world with God free of the pain and suffering she has endured for so many years. Bless you, dear Pam, I will always remember our high school days together. Glad I had the chance to know you. You made such a difference in so many lives. Enjoy your walks with Jesus. I will surely see you again someday.

    To Pam’s family, I am so saddened to hear this news. She and I were good friends in the HHS class of ’65. Those were great times and Pam was a huge part of that close group. We lost touch after we became wives and moms, but the memories are still strong of our teen years. She was a beautiful person inside and out. She is gone too soon. My prayers to those she loved and left behind to cherish her memory.

    Gone too soon. A bright and shining light in a world in great need of her presence. A wonderful legacy of helping others is a true measurement of time and talent well utilized.
