    Beautiful Pam! I always called her my Greek friend! Although I’m married to a Greek man , I’m Irish/English and Pam would say”you are Greek”lol! We shared a lot especially on spirituality, and many deep conversations about God . Pam loved running , we did a race together one year in Richmond. We always met up at Greek feast here in Williamsburg, I just mention to my husband last week I have to text Pam to see if she will be at Greek feast to meet up. I will always miss you and think of you my Greek friend ! My heart aches for her family❤️Remember you are not alone .
