    Pam was a co worker for many years and we were so sad to hear of her passing. She was a fighter and touched many lives through her work. I am not able to attend the gathering so I wanted to leave my condolences. I am so sorry for your loss.

    Pam was my cubicle neighbor and friend for many years at work. Years ago Pam gave me a gift that I still appreciate and use daily. She had an amazing and vast knowledge of resources for the individuals she supported. It’s so very sad and such a loss that we have lost Pam at the prime of her life.

    Pam and the gang were wicked fun team mates for pool league back in the day. Later, as a co-worker, she was always willing to use her knowledge and experience to help. She will be missed.

    I supervised Pam for a number of years at the Division of Aging. Later we both migrated to the DMH Kansas City Regional Office. Pam was always very knowledgeable of resources, compassionate with her clients and consumers, and shared her knowledge with co-workers. Although we haven’t been in touch for the past few years, I deeply regret that she died too young. Condolences to Jim, Stephen, and Opal.
