I am so deeply sorry to hear of Pam’s passing! Growing up with her daughter Lindsey, Pam was like a second mom to me. She was such a loving and fun person to talk to. She had the best laugh. It’s one I will never forget. Pam will always be a huge part of my childhood and left a lasting impression on my life and my heart. So much of my parenting philosophy came from how I witnessed her relationship with her daughter. Lindsey, I love you sweetheart and even though I am far away in miles my heart is with you. Thinking of you and all of her family.
