I can still see us standing in the hallway after school talking about our day. Through our talks, we learned that we had so much in common with one another. I'm really going to miss You Mrs. Smitherman.

Dear Pam,
I am so sad to hear your passing! I hope you could hear me in Heaven. As a neighbor, friend and a NAM parent, you dont know how you touched me and my life as a mom and community member. I started knowing you back then when Christopher came to my house one night to support the Chinese Chamber I co-founded at that time as a City Council Member. I want to let you know that your leadership, your strength and more unforgettably your smile will always inspire me in the future. RIP and you deserve it!

I was so sad to hear of Pam's passing. I worked for Albert years ago and had the pleasure of meeting Pam when I was helping Chris campaign on Election Day. She was very kind and helpful. The think I noticed most was her smile. She was always smiling. Chris, please know I will have you and your family in my prayers.

Pamela is the example of what all great mothers, teachers and what a friend is. The world has tears when she passed and a giant hole in it's heart. RIP and God Speed Pamela. You are dearly missed each minute of every day.

Our condolences to you and your family. I did not know your wife personally, but I did meet you once walking down the street in Cincinnati. I asked to take a picture with you and you were more than willing to do so. Much love and respect for you and your family.

Pam was "mom goals" in human form. When we were starting out as a family new to swim team at Clinton Hills, I remember literally standing in awe of her. She had a very rare combination of leadership and grace, of poise and power. (It's no coincidence you can see these same traits in her children.) Through it all, the love she had for her family really just dripped off of her. You could see it. It was something real
