I am so sorry for your loss to Pam’s Family and friends. I got to know Pam from Crochet Mamas on MSN. She got me to broaden my horizens and learn new things in crochet. For that I am grateful and for her patience. I enjoyed her group immensely. My group name was TallGirl or TallGirlBrenda as I followed her groups around when MSN went down. She will always be a part of me and remembered for her love of Crochet. In Sympathy, Brenda

My deepest sympathy to Pam’s family. Pam was a great inspiration to me. I will think of her every time I crochet. God bless your family at this time.

Mark Poland says:

Thank you to those who have already left comments. Pam was a wonderful woman whom I dearly loved and will miss tremendously. She loved crochet and I enjoyed watching her really light up when she worked on crochet projects, She also loved helping others who wanted to learn and she also learned a lot from others. Pam talked a lot about trying to meet in person most in the groups. We lost a very talented and loving woman. God has an amazing angel now.

Mary says:

I was part of Crochet Fun With Pam… and it was… fun to crochet and hang out online with Pam. She was kind, fair, and thoughtful… talented and generous with her time. She will be missed by friends far from her home in Texas. We will be thinking of her every time we pick up a crochet hook.

Margaret Gardner says:

I have missed Pam greatly since she has been sick. I shall continue to do so. Pam inspired so many of us, not only in crochet but in life in general. As a Crochet Mama, I really miss our group and the camaraderie we shared. I am like Marge, I am so grateful that she no longer has to endure the pain. Thank you Pam, for all you gave me, never looking for anything yourself!!

Claudia Robertson says:

Pam was a wonderful mentor and friend and teacher. I am so thankful I met her when I found her crochet group on MSN. Pam encouraged me and took me under her wing. She wanted me to learn to crochet with thread. I did not think that was possible. Pam knew it was possible for me to learn and often told me I would love it if I learned. She was so right to encourage me. I did love thread crochet. I think of her when I am making a crochet doily with thread. I learned so much about Crochet and made some wonderful friendships in her group. I was blessed to have such wonderful friend in my life – Pam.

I will always think of Pam when I hear about the Texas State Fair. All ribbons she won over the years. The work she put into her entries and the joy she got from winning those ribbons.

My thoughts and prayers are with her family at this time.

Pam was one of those ladies you just instantly liked! She was a great lady, crocheter, and friend to those she hadn’t ever met, but knew through her online crochet group. I am deeply saddened to know she is no longer with us!
