    So sad to hear the news of Pams passing. She will be missed. Prayers to her family. I have quilts she quilted for me so these quilts are my keepsakes from Pam.

    Pam had such a talent for quilting! She quilted several quilts that I had made and each one was special. All of us at our Quilt Group at Patrick Hays Senior Center wanted to see the current quilt that she quilted. Each one was special! She was a vibrant wonderful woman. I’m going to miss her, although I’ve not seen her in a long time. She is a friend forever. Love, Susie

You can rest easy that you did everything you could, & your love & care helped her in ways you may never realize. I will pray for you & the whole Family that you will all be comforted by your memories.
