    I was so saddened to hear of Pam’s passing. I had not seen her in many years but we were school mates for many years. She was a wonderful lady and sounds like she fought a good fight. I am glad she is at peace now but my prayers are with all of her family. I know she will be watching over you.

    A truly wonderful person has left our mortal existence to be embraced in love by Jesus. To know her was to know the abundant love she felt for her husband, Rick (another wonderful person), her children, stepchildren and all their grandchildren. She was remarkable for the strength she showed while dealing with her cancer.
    May God bless her husband, Rick, children, stepchildren, grandchildren and all those knew her, may they find peace that Pam is now in a better place.

  7. Cliff & Donna Martin January 28, 2011 at 12:36 pm

    We have, in the past, prayed for GOD’s strength for Pam and Rick. We will continue, in the future, to pray for strength and comfort for Rick and the entire family as they enter this time of grief. We also pray that this will be a time to celebrate not only the fact that she safe at home with the FATHER but also to celebrate the many happy memories that she has left with us.

    Pam was truly a testament to what we all should be; a fighter and yet gracious in the face of adversity. I shall always remember her and I know that she is now rejoicing with the saints that her battle is over and a new day has begun for her. May you be comforted in knowing that you were instrumental in all that she did for the community and for those of us who are ranked in the ‘survivor’ category.

    To the Cox family, Candie, and Chad: So sorry to hear of your loss. I have so many fond memories of Pam. I remember her walking a half mile through very deep snow to bring us groceries during the blizzard of ’78. She was a very special lady and will be missed by many.
