    My thoughts and prayers are with the family during this difficult time. Pam has been a dear friend of mine since we worked at Kmart together so many many years ago. We had alot of great times together but some of the best is when all of us girls went boating together! She was so much fun and always had a smile on her face. You will be missed so much my friend. Love you Pam. 😪💕🙏

    Pam was an incredible person with a deep faith in God and much love for others. I was privileged to have known her, although we had not yet met in person. I pray for Wayne and the family as they deal with her passing. God bless you all.

    I met Pam through IWGB events but we had much more in common than love for our Lord Jesus Christ. We both love family, friends, animals, and flowers and campfires. We both showed horses in our younger days as well as Pam having lived in West Michigan were I was raised. I had the pleasure of visiting a festival in Kirkland last summer and would had been doing that again if not for the pandemic. I was treated to lunch at the Pink Spoon and made a couple small purchases at Pam’s favorite antique shops that I will cherish always. On Saturday July 18, she said I was welcome anytime and wanted to give me more plant starts. That was Pam, a kind, caring, generous person. I will miss her.

    Pam was one of the greatest ladies I had the pleasure of meeting. I met her buying my first breeding Harlequin rabbits from her. She was knowledgeable, funny and most of caring person. My prayers go out to Mandi ,Wayne and the rest of your family.

    You have your wings … fly high Pam …. I didn’t have the privilege of knowing you for long … but I knew you long enough to know you loved God, Wayne and your family and friends. I will cherish in my heart our camping vacation in TN and the rocks you painted for me. Keep watch over us until we join you with our father in heaven.

  9. Dennis Anderson July 20, 2020 at 10:07 pm

    Much loved and never forgotten. We will miss you everyday. Your plan is now complete as anyone who knew you, knew your love Jesus. No more pains of the earthly life, and I know we shall meet again in heaven.

    Pamela Brown was like a mother to me.

    Pam was one of the kindest, most supportive persons I’ve ever known. She shared her food, her encouragement, and her sympathies with me. It was enough for her that I was friends with one of her boys.

    Shawn and I met in grade 9 and quickly became friends, sharing many hobbies, one of which was playing video-games. After high-school I worked a summer with Shawn for his Dad in their machine shop, out in the garage. I spent countless hours at the Batten house in Brownsburg. No matter the trial, Pam was on my side, encouraging me.

    As I grew into adulthood, she appreciated my work and embraced my wife. Life eventually led me out-of-state, on different paths, into different work. Though our contacts grew infrequent, she and I found time to catch up last year. Pam patiently listened as I assured her of my health, of my family’s well-being, and my growing children.

    One of the last things she she told me was, “love you Vince…never forget that.”

    I have no doubt Pam loved me. And I will miss her.

    With our love and support to Nik, Shawn, and Mandi,
    Vince (for Lori Switzer Londini and our girls)

    De Colores! Pam will be missed beyond measure. She was an amazing friend, and a true daughter of the Most High King. I know she is singing and dancing with Jesus, and that gives me peace. I am praying for your family.

Much love and big hugs to you all!

    My heart aches for you, Wayne. She is with the Lord. She will guide you through your surgery and going forward. She is forever in your heart.

    Pam and I were chums during Jr High at Brownsburg. She loved her horses but she could never get me to ride one! She always had a smile on her face and an infectious laugh. Would see her occasionally at church but our careers and families kept us busy in different directions. She was a very genuine person and an honor if she called you friend. Thoughts and prayers for her family. 🙏🏻🙏🏻

    Very sorry for your loss to the entire family, I met Pam a few times at dog shows with her daughter Mandi, and I loved her she was an awesome person, very down to earth and had a wonderful attitude about life, I’m sure her family will miss her greatly

  26. Sandy Covington July 25, 2020 at 7:35 pm

    She was my friend and we had so much in dog class. Her Lacy and my Maddie looked a lot alike. Pam loved life and all of her animals. I will miss her forever. God Bless you. You were so loved.

  27. Donna J. Berkley July 27, 2020 at 11:49 pm

    Pam was my friend for many years. We studied together, prayed together and had many interesting biblical discussions. She was a loving, caring person of many talents and deep empathy. She was too good for this world, I think. My heart is saddened that she has been taken from us so soon but glad because I know she is with our Heavenly Father where there is peace and joy – and pain is not even remembered. No doubt she is asking her maker a lot of questions right now. Pam, hopefully we’ll see you again soon. Miss you ! You may be gone but you will not be forgotten.
