  1. Dear Sean, Rebecca, Melody and families … Knowing Pam was such a blessing and I thank the Lord for bringing her Home to Him in heaven. Prayers for all of you as you deal with your loss and comfort from all your wonderful memories. Love, Mary

  2. My deepest sympathy to all of Pam’s family and to Pauline. Pam was one of a kind filled with tremendous love of her family and friends and a deep and steadfast faith. There seemed to be no end to her talents. She was a good friend. I will miss our get togethers and our grandma chats. God grant you all strength and nothing but warm and happy memories. RIP, my friend.

  3. My deepest condolences to all of Pam’s family. I only had the pleasure of meeting Pam once but her warmth, kindness and generosity shone through and I instantly liked her. She was the founder of our first scalp cooling Buddy program and the brain behind it. This legacy shall live on and provide support to patients not only at Northshore but across the USA eventually. I am feel honoured to have to met her. She will be greatly missed by a number of my colleagues. We will cherish the fond memories we have. Rest in peace.

  4. Pam and I were alphabetical locker buddies in high school (Hegg and Heil). She talked about her family often in those locker stops. Sorry that she had to leave so soon, but happy that she is out of pain. Condolences to her family and to Pauline. She was a special lady!
