My dear friend, Pam will always be remembered. Her sweet smile and caring ways changed my life for 47 years. Full of artistic talent and a genuine love of life and family, Pam encouraged me to higher levels of faith and made me a better person. I am forever thankful.

"Aunt Pam" was my Nana's best friend since high school! I only met her a couple of times, but she was always warm, kind, and clearly a very nurturing person who was full of love. Moving out to the Midwest didn't stop her from being a wonderful friend to my nana - they would talk on the phone regularly and it was clear that Nana always left their conversations happy and revitalised. My deepest condolences to the family - the world needs more "Aunt Pams"! All of our love, "Tasha", Sue and Bill Moyer.
