I first met Tommy, Pam and their family when I hired Pam as my cook's-aide at the Panhandle Nutrition Site in Beaver; when that cook left I immediately promoted Pam to head cook and she was undoubtedly the best I ever had.  I was so saddened to hear of her health-issues and death although I was no-longer employed there.  It is so sad what has happened with that Nutrition site and food delivery so I hear even though I am far-away now.  I will have the family in my-prayers, concerns and thoughts during this void.  Grieve-as-you must; not-as-others are telling you is right, wrong and indifferent.  Due to my own-health issues of present, I cannot travel outside Stillwater.  Remember, you are not-orphaned as our Lord has each in His-unchanging and unfailing hands.  Travel the pathway He has for each one as there are no-pathways but individual one for each.  May He bless, comfort and give you peace.
