At the same time, we were all so greatly enriched by her, in a lasting and transformative way, that her presence endures and will do so, for a long time. Her legacy lives and thrives, and many of those whom she has taught and mentored will rise up among us and lead the way to a fairer and better world.
May you rest in peace, dear Pamela, and may we carry the burning torch you lit, in your honour and for the sake of those you served with passion, courage and imagination.

I am so very sorry for your loss. Losing a loved one in death is one of the most painful experiences we can go through, but it can be comforting to know that humans were never meant to endure such pain. In fact, we were never meant to die. Ecclesiastes 3:11 says that God “put eternity in [our] heart.” God also promises us in Psalms 37: 29 that “the righteous will possess the earth, and they will live forever on it.” It's nice to know that we won't have to endure such tragedy and suffering for much longer. A website that I find comforting is jw.org. It's a Bible-based website that talks about all the promises that God has for the future. I hope it can provide some light during this difficult time.
With Sincerity, Abby
We became fast friends and I followed her career as she went on to influence and help shape so many other areas of social justice work.
I was suppose to get together with Pamela for the first weekend in May of this year, but I screwed up the dates in my calendar. I knew she had been battling cancer but the last time we spoke she insisted she was doing fine. I so regret that I didn't do more to rearrange my schedule so we could spend time together. I had no idea that time was so precious.
I was forever inspired by Pamela's energy, passion, and strategic vision. She will be sorely missed by us all.
