From Pam's Son Ross, he wrote:

I found a few things that I have been carrying in my briefcase for quite sometime. My mother loved her heritage and her native home.
It will be 10 years on the 9th of June since my mothers passing. She always looked forward to her visits back home and to her friendships from her school days. I have more stuff in the folder. I just didn't want to over whelm you with old reunion stuff. Let me know if you would like me to send it over.
Myself and my siblings have all survived the passing of our mother, but with sorrow and deep regret. I am sure each of us has some special moments but to try and think of something more special than the next would minimize the most important thing we ever had, TIME. I could share the proud moment of her and I holding my game ball after my own homecoming football battle, The time in California at my Graduation from Army training and seeing her proud face when her three sons returned from the first Gulf War.  Knowing how proud she must be to see her children raising her grandchildren with honor and respect as she had done. These things and so many more made being her son an honor. Cherish your time and make amends so that you never regret when you loose someone special.

It is clear that Pam lived as she did in High School, putting 30 hours into 24, over achieving in everything she was engaged in.  Although she only had 56 years she lived to be 100 on the score card.  We will all miss her.

Having just learned of Pam's passing, I want to give my sympathy to the family.  Pam and I got to know each other mainly through choir and girls' chorus.  I don't know if she continued with her singing, but I know we both enjoyed it at the time, particularly when we participated in the production of Carousel.  I can imagine how much you miss her, but know she was liked by all who knew her.
