From Chris...

I worked with Pam for almost 15 years and she always loved talking about her dogs and grandchildren. Often misunderstood, but always willing to listen and one of the least selfish people that I’m had the pleasure of being around.

May she be in a better place and her family find the strength and courage they need through this challenging time.
