Im completely at a loss hearing of your passing Pammie. You were always such a supportive friend and never judged anyone. Your smile and laughter was so contagious. I know that we havent spoken in many years, but you should know that you gave me the strength to do things in this life that I thought were impossible. We will always love & cherish your spirit and Memory. Our heart goes out to your family as they have lost a very rare jewel. Until we meet again my sweet friend. :heartbeat:
