My deepest condolences to Pam's family and friends. I didn't know her but remember her from when I was a child of 5 or 6 and seeing her in school. I am an old friend of Tim and Joe's and my daughter was baptized with Ken in 1998 as we attended the same church. My Mom was friends with Estelle in high school in the 50s. As I told Tim yesterday, I just remember how as that child of 5 and 6, I thought she looked like a princess, just so beautiful. It saddens me to read of her passing. She looks so much like Estelle in this picture and I'm left with the same thought as I had as a child; so beautiful! May God provide you with peace and comfort during the difficult days ahead.

Rest in Peace.

I am very sad to learn about Pam's passing. Pam and I first met at Paragon Food Brokers in 1992 and have worked with her throughout our foodservice careers in many various capacities. She was always the "Glass is half full" person and I really liked that about her. Her smile was infectious and her beaming personality was contagious. You really made an impact on many peoples lives. My heart goes out to the family and wish you my deepest sympathy.

Pam was an extremely kind and beautiful person. My many years of experience working with Pam were when I for 20 plus years worked with Sysco, and Pam with Paragon Brokers and Kettle Cuisine. Pam was a dedicated worker with tremendous people skills. I could always count on Pam with any task.
More importantly, she often spoke of her family, and was a true friend. Rest In Peace Pam, you traveled the journey, and touched and impacted many. God Bless.

To all of Pam's family. I want to extend my heartfelt hope of finding peace with your loss and may your pain be eased with knowing how loved she was from reading all the comments being shared. I new Pam through my dear dear friend Paula. It's been years since I've seen her but I feel I knew her through Paula. Too many of us have tragically lost our spouses or parents and there is unfortunately nothing we can do to ease the pain. You just learn to live with it and some day, I promise, you'll be able to smile at her memory and laugh about all the great memories you shared. I am so sorry that this has encompassed your life and know there are people out there thinking of you and your family. Even people such as myself with a distant connection.

To Greg and Pam’s family, Cynthia and I send you our sincere condolences. We cherish our memories of visits during Travers week. Greg and Pam always the most gracious hosts. Pam’s magic in the kitchen was always enjoyed by all. The great friends that gathered at Pam’s and Greg’s are what love is all about. Be strong now Greg like Pam was during this trying ordeal. May Pammy now rest peacefully.
