    Pammy, I’m going to miss you so much. Being in your presence the past 3 years has been the absolute best. This past year has been tough but I’m so glad we were able to keep each other laughing during those hard times.

    Now who can I sing and dance to “It’s a heartache” by Bonnie Tyler too?
    Listening to your music was one of my favorite things to do with you. My favorite was when “Ma Baker” by Boney M. came on the speaker and you’d crack up laughing to the first part, “FREEZE! I’m Ma Baker – Put your hands in the air, gimme all your money”.

    I’m going to miss watching Murder She Wrote over and over again. Especially season 1. You just know Jessica Fletcher is going to solve every one of those cases no matter what. Hahah
    You were also my food channel buddy with watching baking competitions and watching your favorite cook, Ree Drummond on “The Pioneer Woman”.

    I love you. Give Lisa and Heidi a hug for me.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to The Swan family. Thank you for being my family from the beginning.

    My sweet Meme’,
    I love you,
    I love you more,
    I love you the most…..
    I don’t think I will ever say that to anyone else without hearing only you saying it back to me. I miss you so much already, my sister, my best friend! I know you’re with Heidi, Lisa, Mom and Dad and of course my Lovey dancing to all your favorite Disco, what a party! Some day I too will be dancing on streets of gold with all of you. But till we meet again my darling sister, I love you, I love you more, I love you the most….

    Pam was part of the magic that made our childhood so special. Always the captain in punchball, a killer croquet player, and just a super sweet person. My condolences to Karen, Robin and Bob.

      We had a neighborhood of all girls and 1 boy-my brother. Pam & my brother were best buddies.
      We had years of punch ball games in my backyard; then the Swans got a pool-we thought “they must be SO rich!”
      Pam was always upbeat. She came o we to my house a lot- not to talk to me but to bewith my mother. Years of coffee and treats from the Yum Yum shop
      I just learned of Heidi and Lisa when I heard about Pam from my cousin.
      Bobby-yes- he will always be Bobby, not Bob to me-?, Robin and Karen-I wish you peace.
