    I am so sad today for Pam’s precious family. She is a wonderful person who made a difference in everyone who had the privilege of knowing her. Pam will be missed! Her presence was always made known by her beautiful smile and kind words. How her smile must have lit up heaven when she saw Jake, her dad and met Jesus face to face for the first time. I will continue to pray for you, Rick, Ashley and the rest of your family. This has to be so hard for you, but God is with you at every turn.
    Love, Rick and Barb Velasquez
