  1. Aunt Pam was an amazing person. She was very artistic and creative. She gave me several poems that were beautifully written. Every time I walked into church, she would greet me with her beautiful smile. I can’t wait to see her again in heaven.

  3. Cousin Pam, more of a sister than a cousin. Living within walking distance, going to the same school, raised up in the same church brings back such wonderful memories. My heart is broken today but I know you will be in heaven waiting for me with open arms. Skippy and Charles you will be in my prayers.
