Pam's friendship with me was an unexpected treasure, leaving me now with sweet, funny, wonderful, good moments for me to cherish. I am so deeply saddened for God's choice to take my best friend so soon & unexpected from us. We met at a friends Christmas party several years ago & then became friends at another's SuperBowl party.When Pam realized I was an Interior Designer with a focus on kitchen/bathroom design, she asked me to assist her with a new layout & selections for her kitchen. This is when our friendship became a cemented bond for one another. I cannot be more gratful to God for bringing my precious, sweet, genuine friend into my life to share so many like interests & concerns. I think when Pam told me she had excepted the Lord Jesus into her heart, as I had done, this became a deep and shared connection between us. I attended dinners w/her at Pam's Church of the Good Sheperd & we would attend concerts & special services together at Peckville Assembly of God Church. God's hand was on her life so mightly & I could see how her walk with God deepened over the years. The best time of our friendship highlighted 2 years ago when we traveled to Isreal for almost 2 weeks, along with 10 like-minded friends including, Pastor Terry Drost & wife, Becky, of Peckville Assembly of God Church. Included was our best friend, roommate & like believer, Claudia Shaw, who God called Home only one year after we returned from the Holy Land. This trip united us all in deep friendship that we still jokingly refer to as "The 12 Disciples", now 10. It remains with me as such a special time in my memories & photos & now even more so, that God allowed me to share this last special time, as a roommate, in His Chosen Israel with my 2 special, sweet cherished friends, Pam & Claudia. Pam had a deep love for her daughter, Loren, granddaughter, Kendall & her sister, Kristen, nephews, son-in-law & brother-in-law holding them up in prayer at different times for whatever the need to arise. My last conversation w/Pam was re: her soon planned trip, w/Kristen, to travel to see her newly born twin baby girl granddaughters of daughter Loren & son-in-law, Charles. Pam was rightfully proud & ecstatic over God's new blessing to her & her family. But this did not come to pass. My mind cannot understand this. I have to accept this by God's Word, that says "His ways are not man's way". I just know that He knows best, & His promise of Hope that I will see my Dear Sweet Pam, & Claudia, one day, when it is my turn. I was erasing messages from my phone, last eve. I left one on it where it will remain. It is from Pam asking me to return her call re: if I had planned to attend church on Sun, June 24, 2018, as she would go,too. I am so glad to know that is where her heart was because He called her Home Fri, June 22, 2018.

Total shock and disbelief of the news of her passing. Thanks to my many friends out there for there moral support at such an extremely tough time for me. My heart goes out to her family. I will never be the same. May the precious Lord above have mercy on her soul. Pam will be sorely missed by everyone who was fortunate enough to have known her. She was like a sister to me and we have so many great memories. All I know is Pam is definitely in a much better place right now because of her very strong faith and that alone should be a lesson to the rest of us!!! Rest in peace my dear Pamela.

I am so saddened by the passing of my dear friend of over 30 years. Pam was one of a kind and no one can replace her. Given her strong faith, I'm sure she is in a happier place - where she is meant to be. John joins me in sending condolences to her friends and family.

Many were saddened by the sudden loss of such a good person as Pamela. But we all should find solace in knowing she will continue in eternal life with our Lord Jesus Christ. As our memories of her pretty smile and beautiful eyes fade, we will always hold the love from her in our hearts. Love You Pam, Brian

To all that loved Pam, while I didn't know her well I know her sister my friend Kristan. Through Kristan I have learned so much about Pam. I know that losing her is like losing a best friend. My heart is saddened at the loss of such a best friend to so many. But for those that had Pam as your friend or aunt or sister or daughter or grandma remember the stories and the laughter. Sending hugs to all.
