  11. I am saddened to hear about the passing of Pam. I graduated High School with Pam. I remember Pam as a quiet soul and very nice. I had the opportunity a few years back of seeing Pam in her band. I did not realize in High School that Pam was as talented as she was. It was a pleasure listening to them. Although I have never met Pam’s family I am wishing you all moments of peace and comfort as you remember and reminisce about Pam.
