My prayers are with my dear friends Pam and John

A truly gracious woman. Enjoyed many a campfire conversation.

Both John and Pam are in my thoughts, for strength and understanding to endure

BTB, Kind Sir,
Our thoughts are with you both, and will continue to be in our daily prayers. The 'Big Guy' upstairs does hear them as he has blessed many of us yet again with his wondrous powers.
For those that have never met Pam, she always has an ear-to-ear smile that is as contagious as a case of giggles! I don't know how anyone could meet her and not smile as much as she does.
Pam, I know BTB will be reading you all these comments and thoughts, keep that smile going and your faith up front.
You are loved by and blessed with a husband only others can envy.
God bless and keep you both in his arms.
'Ol Gabe

John and Pam, you are in our thoughts and prayers.  You have our phone number if you ever need to talk.  Psalm 23 was comforting while in Afghanistan.

I don't know what to say. Pam, you and John were some of the first people I met when I got into NCOWS. I'm glad we got together and spent some time at the Mid-West Regional, last July. We'll keep you both in our prayers. John you got my number, give me a call if you need to.

I?m deeply saddened to hear about this. I had the good fortune to meet Ms. Pam last year at the Convention and to dine with Pam and John at the banquet. Also spoke with Pam a few times by phone. There really aren?t any words to adequately express this but she was as kind, gracious and helpful as could be. Singularly unique. I will be praying for both of them.

My deepest sympathy to John and his family. Pam was a wonderful lady. I will always remember the good times we spent camping together through the years.

Pam left us yesterday morning, with Jeremy, Carey, and myself by her side
Please google Chapman funeral homes for the obituary. This Sat. we will be
having a celebration of life from 10-2 with a memorial service at 11 by our
own and good friend Lyle Greiner. Thanks so much for the support and good
times over the years, we were able to meet so many wonderful people in our 
group over the years.

My heart is heavy as I learn of this sad news. While I never met Miss Pam, I heard my friend Bear Tooth Bill speak so highly of her that I figured she was one tremendous and fantastic lady.  My brother BTB, please accept my most sincere condolences for you and your family. Y?all are in my prayers.  I know our paths crossed back in the 1870s and they will again. God bless you all.
