The love between a mother and daughter is forever.

I only met Pamela after she became ill, but even in sickness, her strength, faith and love for her family came through. I was privileged to be able to tell her story with Sharon Coolidge for the Cincinnati Enquirer. The love everyone felt for her came through in the many photographs I took. Rest in peace Pamela. You will never be forgotten.

I grew up with Pam, she was one of the smartest kids in a class of over a thousand. Ill always think of her wearing her signature pigtails, saying something totally brilliant, unique and often hilarious despite her generally serious outward persona. We all loved her. I lost track of her in college days but was so happy to hear that shed become a teacher. Passing on everything she had to the next generation with wit and acumen unparalleled Im certain. It felt like a perfect match. I am heartbroken for her family. Sending love and condolences.
