Even though Pam had no children she before her illness she was very active in directing the children’s choir and loved to comb her niece’s hair slicked down with a pound of oil. She liked going to the wrestling match with her husband, (Joe Cole) and her baby brother (Everett Howard). She liked driving fast cars and traveling. She always dressed sharp and had a great since if humor. Pam was also an awesome tambourine player. Her favorite food was fried chicken and honey buns. Don’t forget the number one from Tasty Freeze.

She always called her niece Becca, “meme”, and her nieces that she thought were triplets “the Meaty sisters”. She would always share her food with Journey, her great niece.
