    To Denise and family
    I am so shocked and very sorry to hear of the passing of Pam. I usually see her around town, and she always waves if she sees me. Blair and I also used to see her at the mall, she always chatted about you Denise,and Dylan and Devyn. She loved to tell me about what her family was up to.
    So sorry again, my thoughts and love go out to you and your family.
    Love Jean

  • Peter says:

    I drive bus for Kelowna Transit part time and often had Pamela on my bus. I never knew her name. I called her ‘Sweet Pea’. Don’t know why but it seemed to fit and she lit up whenever she got on the bus and I said “Hi Sweet Pea”. Then she would proceed to ‘talk my ear off’ all the way to Orchard Park. I’ll miss you Sweet Pea.
