  1. I met you at Cammy & Deb’s place on Fisher Lake that summer you graduated. I met Dave. We all met my future wife next door and the memories began sharing laughs and our lives together for many years including actually sharing that house on S. Hooker. The bonsai trip to Massachusetts to pickup my wayward sister Vicki. We were there for each other so many times. Family. There’s been a couple decades of distance as my relationship ended and my work pulled me a few hours away. You gave me your couch for weeks at a time when I needed it. It was so difficult when you and Dave were on such hard times – you’re love for him never wavered. I’ll never forget that about you. I love you my dear friend. I pray heaven is as wonderful as you dreamt it would be.

  2. We’re gonna miss you baby sister. Although we hadn’t seen each other in a while, we did converse back and forth on Messenger. We loved sharing little TikTok videos. I know they made us laugh a lot…and sometimes at ourselves. LOL
    I know our last actual conversation was to tell you to Please take All of the medication the doctor had given you. I know guess it was easy playing “mom” Haahaa
    But I really thought I’d be back to Michigan before something like this happened. I guess you and God had other plans.
    Anyway, I love you forever and miss you always. Tip a Bud Lite with my Dave (if you haven’t already LOL And give my guys a big hug from me! Until we meet again baby sister.

  3. Auntie Pam, I will miss you so much. You were my godmother and special to me in ways that others can’t match. Thank you for loving me unconditionally and for showing all of us how much you cared every time we met. I pray this brings you the kind of peace that life never seemed to afford to you. Love, Eric
