    It’s been many years since I’ve seen my Auntie Pam, but the memories I have of her are dear to me. She was always fun and so loving. And, best of all she had a wacky sense of humor which I thoroughly enjoyed. I’ll never forget the eggplant she disguised as a beautiful Christmas present one year because she knew how much I hated eggplant. We all had a good laugh after I opened that gift. My heart is so sad to know that she has left this earth, but so happy because she is finally with her King. See you again someday. I love you Auntie Pam.

    I will always remember my Auntie Pam as a nutty, wonderful, funny lady who always smiled and made people laugh! She was a sweet soul and will surely be missed by many.

    This is a poem Pam wrote years ago that is very fitting for us to read today:

    Another Soul rose to you, Lord
    Suffering done
    Glory awaiting
    Angels greeting
    Savior’s open arms.

    What a day
    Mixed emotions
    For those left behind.
    Those who loved her
    And miss her already.

    Mixed emotions
    Glad the suffering is done
    Glad she is with You –
    Yet so difficult for us
    As we weep our loss.

    It’s like sugar and salt
    In the same cup of coffee.

    Another Soul rose to you, Lord.
    Someday we will see you both –
    What a day!

      That one stood out to me as well as I read some of her poetry. She was very gifted with her words. Just beautiful.

    Pam had a most delightful sense of humor (and, I’m sure, still does.) We had many laughs together. I’ve known her since she was in high school, and still remember the time after graduation when she exhibited great courage by moving to New York City totally on her own. I was so proud of her.
    Later, after she and Jerry were married, she began to use a talent I never knew she had … writing poetry. We have taken those beautiful poems of faith and bound them in a book which we cherish. I’ll try to post one here, hoping it isn’t too long.
    Auntie Pam, we love you and look forward to seeing you again.

    Pam was so sweet and helpful to me on my first day of lapidary class. I will always remember her for this and her beautiful stones. We have missed her in our classes.

    Aunt Pammy will always be loved and cherished. She and mom (like you said) are walking on heavens beach… Finding pretty little shells.
    Please keep in touch.
