    I am so sad at Pam’s passing. I know she’s now at peace, but she will forever be missed.

    I so glad to have the memories of us playing as children at Grandma Kormy’s house. A beautiful spirit has entered the home of Jesus.

    God bless each of you in her family for all you’ve done for her and Amanda. Love and blessings, Mary

    I will remember that Pam has always had a smile when I was around her. I remember when she, kay, and I went to Marceline celebration for the 100th birthday of Walt Disney’s. I’m happy I got to visit with her a couple of times in the last year. She will be missed by all. I was thinking yesterday about all the family she is with now in Heaven. No more pain, just smiles. God bless the family she left behind. Mya they find peace.

    I am so sorry to hear about Pam passing away. I worked with her for several years at the Ballard Center and she was such a great asset to that organization. During that time I saw Amanda grow up to be a wonderful young woman. My prayers are with your family. Sherri
