  1. Nurses and Chaplains! The best resource a Chaplain ever had, and Pam was one of the most caring for the veterans. “Fr. Bill. My patient is depressed….go talk to him/her.” It was my privilege to work along side Pam for many years at what is now the Lovell Federal Health Care Center.
    We were closest every Ash Wednesday!!! Even among her nurse friends who did not get “ashes.” Oh well, she can pull for them from Heaven! Fr. Bill Vander Heyden, Retired Chief Chaplain, Lovell Federal Health Care Center

  2. I am sending my deepest condolences and prayers and love to Pam’s family. You all know and we who knew of her and worked with her knew her heart and personality ❤️🙏🏽. ‘ TO BE ABSENT FROM THE BODY IS “TO BE PRESENT WITH THE LORD OUR SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST’”.
    To the family praying for strength during this time but know that GOD AND JESUS CHRIST is always and forever with you all ❤️🙏🏽,
    With LOVE AND RESPECT ❤️🙏🏽,

  3. My deepest and sincere condolences to Pam’s family. She will forever be special to me. We had many good times working together and we always had lunch when she made her annual trips home during the summer. I was very shocked and extremely saddened to hear of her passing. So sorry I was unable to attend her services, but was attending services for my best friend and former co-worker in Louisiana. Rest well, Pam, and thanks for all you did for me as my head nurse and friend.
