The death of your loved one Pamela is one of the most devastating experiences your family will face. At times, the pain of the loss will feel unbearable. Please know that there are friends who care about you and your family during this difficult time and more importantly Psalm 34:18 tells us that "God is near to those that are broken at heart. We pray that Jehovah the God of all comfort is with your family during this difficult time of grief.

I am so sorry to hear of Pam's passing. I just learned of it today. I was looking at old photos and started to explore my mom's old friends. Nicole, you and I knew each other when we were very little and our parents were friends. My mom passed in 2017. I am sorry for your family's loss. I remember staying at your parents house when I was little and your mom always being so happy and friendly. My mom was Sherri Justice and her ex-husband was Clay. Bruce was their best man.
