From Kevin Pedigo-
I remember when I first saw Pam when we all started Junior High. I thought she was one of the prettiest girls I had ever seen. During  the start of our eight grade year, we became boyfriend/girlfriend such as it was back then. Living way out by the Milky Way, Pam walked right by my house on the way to and from school. I started  walking her home every night and held her hand all the way. Once when I missed school for a few days due to the flu, Pam would stop by to see how I was doing. This ended when basketball practice started after school in late fall and we grew apart and never got close again.
Many years later I was living in the Mobile Home park on the Mulberry/Jefferson blacktop and went to the mail box shed to pick up the mail. There stood Pam getting her mail, she lived on the other side of the park and neither of us knew the other was there. We talked for a good hour, she told me that day she had not been feeling very well, but it was nothing serious. That was the last time I saw her and didn’t know of her passing until the 25th class reunion. If I had only known then she would not be with us now, I would have visited her while I still lived there. She was a sweet person taken to soon.
