    Pam and family,
    Your mom was always an amazing woman, so supportive and sweet. I still have great memories of the day of the wedding, Kat running around with bobbing curls in her hair. What a day.
    Hold all of those memories in your mind, and think of them on the bad days. Take care of yourselves. Your mom will be missed but never forgotten.
    Deepest sympathies
    Love Tracey
