Pamela and Jeff would often go to Glamus, California and ride the sand dunes with their ATV, meeting their good friends there during the Thanksgiving holidays. She also enjoyed going down to the river (Laughlin, Nevada) with her mother and playing her favorite slots. Pamela would call it her mother/daughter date with thanks to her husband, Jeff.
In life we loved you dearly; in death we love you still. In our hearts we hold a place that only you can fill, dear Pamela.
