I hope that during your life you sometimes looked back at the all the fun times we had as kids and smiled or laughed. Sleep-overs and roller skating and of course, singing badly to Barbra Streisand, "A Woman in Love". You will be missed and you were my friend in my heart always. I am sad that you have passed away. My deepest sympathy to all your family. You will be missed.

To the family of Pam.
I was a intern in the movie Liebestraum in the summer of 1990. This was shot in my hometown of Binghamton NY. I got to know Pam and she was very nice to work with, I have nice memories of working with her. I have a copy of the script that her and the cast autographed for me.
You will be in my thoughts and prayers over the next few days.

I had the pleasure of working with Pamela on the film Liebestraum. She was a wonderful lady. Ive often thought of her through the years and wondered how she was doing. Occasionally Id see her on TV and I knew she was doing well. The world is a little darker without the brightness of her smile. May she Rest In Peace. I cannot imagine the loss you are all facing, but know Pamela was loved by many. You are all in my thoughts and prayers at this most difficult time.

I was sorry to hear of Pam's untimely passing. Pam was a beautiful woman, inside and out. I was a classmate of Pam's at Presentation of Mary in 1979 and 1980. Pam had a bright spirit and I will always remember Pam smiling and laughing, with the innocence of youth. May God give you peace and solace at this difficult time.

Pam, I will forever remember you! You took care of me like a little sister and I will always think of your incredible sense of humor and your laugh, I can still hear in my head even when the Delorian was over heating on Hampton strip. You were such an inspiration to me, always a positive roll model. You will forever be missed. Love always. My Condolence to your family and all your friends.

We were shocked and very saddened to hear of Pam's passing. She was a classmate and friend of our daughter, MaryAnn both at St. Joseph's and Presentation of Mary. We loved it whenever she came with us on ski trips, etc. She was always smiling, relaxed, bubbly and uninhibited. She was a treasure and a pleasure to be with--always cheerful and helpful. Phyllis, your heart must be broken on losing your precious child. Our prayers are with you and your family during this very sad time.
