I am so sorry for the heartache all of you are going through at this time.

Dee Hobrle (friend of Sue)
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family Sue!  Pammy is at peace now, so I hope that will bring you comfort in the days to come.

So many memories...
So little time.

You'll be in my heart always.

We have lost a dear friend, and a part of us is gone.  We have many fond memories of Pam and she will be in our hearts forever.  The message of her life was one of determination, and of love and devotion to family, friends and faith.  Our only consolation at this time is from II Corinthians:
"To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord."
Our hearts are broken. 
Our deepest condolences to Scott, Rene and Chase,
 Pam's father, her sisters, and all of Pam's family.

Lori, Mike & Merilee Miller

My heart goes out to you and your family. I did not get to know you, but my wife (Angela Rice) says you were a wonderful woman and I would have been lucky to have known you.  I am proud to be a part of your family and my girls will always know who you were...ARE!

My thoughts and prayers are with the family at this most difficult time.

Julie Hains (friend of Sue)
We have lost a great person. Pam was a great neighbor and friend. I always enjoyed the short walk to her house just to chat and play with the kids. She was a big encourager and always wanted me to become an RN (which I am on my way to doing). You will be missed by many but never forgotten.

Becky Hengst
Oh Aunt Pammy, how your life ended so soon, even though you're gone you're really not, death is a awaited journey that we all face some sooner then others. I do know this everytime the wind blows and the sun shines bright thats you, like our faith we may not be able to see it but we can feel it, like your presence. I love you and will miss you always. If you get a chance tell dad and grandma "Hi", don't worry I'll be there for my cousins like you were for me. "He that beleiveth in me shall not die but have everlasting life".

Love, your niece, Michelle
I'm very sorry for your loss.

Bonnie A. Gross
Dear Scott, René and Chase,
I suffer along with you at this terrible time in your lives. None of us know when God will call us home. I thank Him she did not suffer. We will miss you Pam. Rest in Heaven; God Bless you and your family.

Lee Rice
Mother of Scott and Grandmother of René and Chase

Please accept my heartfelt condolences.

Mary D. Kutulakis, friend of Sue
I'm glad to have known Pam. She had a great sense of humor and an outgoing personality. I knew her in high school and a few years afterwords, but lost touch over the years. I wish I had taken the opportunity to reconnect with her more recently.

William (Rocky) Gleason

I love you Mommy more than anything in the world.
May you rest in peace. I know God will take care of you.


There will be no other like you,
I will always remember you,
We will see you again someday when its our time to go,
You are gone but never forgotten...
Clifford D. Forester Jr.
