It is hard to believe Pam is gone. We first met on as next door neighbors on Sedgwick Rd when Sarah was born and immediately she and our daughter ( a month older) became friends. We have kept up through the years including the spouses of our children and our grandchildren playing together in Nantucket. Pam had a remarkable life. She will be sorely missed. Sarah, please keep in touch.

We are so sad to hear of Pam's passing. To Sarah and all the family that she loved and was devoted to we send our condolences. We knew Pam on Nantucket and loved her spirit and devotion to friends. When our daughter was ill and dying, Pam took me to church every Sunday in an effort to keep me grounded during an incredibly tragic time. My granddaughter Isabella adored Pam and used to sit on her lap and play with her hair; she was like another gramma to her. We were so thrilled when she and Ted found each other and had a few incredibly happy years together. You are all in our thoughts and prayers as you honor an amazing woman. Rest in peace Pam. Love from the Parrotto Family and the Budzynski Family.

Pam's kind heart and caring ways touched many of us who were fortunate to know her. She was bright and fun with the inner strength to confront life's challenges with grace. My heart-felt condolences to Sarah and all Pam's loved ones.

We were deeply saddened to learn of Pan's passing. She was a delightful, warm, kind and above all fun and funny person. She had a captivating warm smile. We always enjoyed our visits with her and are grateful for the pleasant memories of them. Our sincere heartfelt deep sympathy to all her family.
