Condolence & Memory Journal

Pam, my condolences to all of your family during this time. I hope you had a celebration of life ceremony for her. I always remember her as a firecrackerish (is this a word?) fun person. I also remember her cakes she brought to the Methodists Church potlucks. YUM! Please send me your FB name or even your email address.

Pam, So sorry of your Mom's passing. I remember your parents and always thought they were special and always enjoyed being around them. I had Sunday school class with them and always thought your mom had a wonderful reading voice, she spoke so clearly when she read. She was a classy lady!
