  1. Pam was a wonderful Lady, whom wish I’d known better. As it is. my Husband Wes and I have nice memories as
    neighbors , fellow church members, and as volenteers at what used to be called Willows of Woodbridge.
    I think she was with us at the unusual and fun wedding put on at Willows for our Corgis, Conor, aFnished champion,. and Kayla, our rescued lady. It had all been planned by Terry Duda. the Recreation Director, and a good friend of Pam’s and ours.
    May she rest in peace, with her beloved Lou again.
    With love, Wes & Sandy Hook
