There’s very little anyone can say or do to ease the loss of someone who meant so much to you. But may you find comfort in the sadness that you bear. Just knowing there are many hearts that sympathize and care…
It’s love and memories that are left behind and that last forever. The joy having been part of someone else’s journey that fills our hearts with peace even at this difficult time. I truly believe Pam was on earth to bring smiles to everyone that knew her. Pam, you worked hard and played hard.
Rest in peace cousin your work on earth is done.

My deepest sympathies for your loss. As a twin myself, I can't imagine the loss you are feeling. My sympathies to the other siblings as well. Twins have a connection that is so amazing and hard to explain. A part of you left this world with her but I hope you find comfort in knowing some day you will be able to join her again and pick up where you left off. A part of her stayed with you as well that day. Hold on to that part.

Karli, My sympathies for the loss of your Mom. My heart hurts for you and your family. Keep her alive with the many memories

What does one say at a time like this. So much of the same has been said so many times. And each one, you can feel the sincerity.
I moved away from Mitchell, shortly after graduation. Only made it back every few years years. Graduation is what destroyed our group. I stop and think of all the times we grew up together, back in our home town. It's sad that we all have to get on with life and forget the friendships we had in our 'evolving' lives.
Class of '70 IS the best.
Pam, Monica (hey, did you two know you had the same birthday? Pretty cool, huh.
Life is too short, especially for all the friends you pick up on the way.
Loved you Pam. Loved you Monica.
Karli,you got a pretty good deal when you were born into this family.
All my love and and all my heart felt thanks for being a part of my life.

Pam used to have Jadyn Toliver and I come stay over for sleepovers when we were younger. Those sleepovers consisted of watching flicka or sea-biscuit, getting whatever snacks we wanted from coborns, and being woken up in the middle of the night to her tv blaring the fresh prince of bel air theme song. Not only did Pam make the best banana bread, but she was always so willing to make you some if you asked! She was funny and oh so beautiful. Last week she had sent me a Snapchat to tell me she wants the hell out of the nursing home so she could have a glass of wine. Well Pam, you’re free from there and free from pain. I hope they had wine waiting for you at the gates. You will be so missed down here and I can’t wait to see you again!
