My dear friend Pamela, we were so very close, especially during our graduate school classes. We took every one we could together. Pamela, without a doubt, was the most brilliant one in the class. She could sit in the back of the class, giggle, and then give the most amazing answer to the professor when she was called on. I did not even think she was listening!!! She was so funny and wonderful, the last time I talked to her she called me a yo-yo! She was so very very passionate about her husband, her sons, and very loving and always so concerned about her beloved parents. My most sincerest condolences to Gus, Johnathan, Nikolas, Mr. and Mrs. Sumlin, and every life she touched. Every time we spoke on the phone, she always gave me wonderful advice and from the bottom of my soul, I will miss her here on this earth. With her deep rooted love of The Lord, she would never want any of us to be suffering because of her now being in her sacred home of heaven.
