    I've kept up with Pam since she was a senior at Rock River HS and her wonderful smile hasn't changed over all of these years. I ran into her frequently at Walmart or Safeway in Laramie where she'd update me on her hunting accomplishments and introduce me to her kids. The kids were always very polite and would indulge us as we talked about old friends and current adventures. Even though we didn't see each other regularly, we would always reconnect and enjoy our visits. Pam was a strong, courageous woman with a great sense of humor. When I saw her after her trips to Phoenix, she'd invite me to see her granddaughters play basketball and again flash that smile. I'll miss you, Pam. My sincere condolences to family members and friends.

    To the Christensen and Bowers family, Pam was a long time, long distance friend. We had a good time dancing and caring on way back in the day. I will miss seeing her at the UW women's BBall games. Too bad I didn't get to see that 53 point game , Longhorns and Wranglers have a long lived history. Pam is in a better place now and at peace. RIP. Cliff Smith, ol' Bowite.
