Pam was a fellow member of Plymouth-Canton Mothers of Twins in the 1980's. I remember her for being such a caring mother, classy lady. She volunteered to help a neighborhood child with cerebral palsy, while keeping up her own home as well as the needs of family. She truly added to the world.
Our heartfelt condolences to Loren and the family....
We remember Mrs. Briggs as a vivacious woman who truly loved life her family, and her pets. She always made us feel welcome in her home with a complement and a smile. She added kindness and laughter to this world.
Pam was a bright light, always full of positive energy and sunshine. And what a wonderful influence on her kids and grandkids...we are sorry to lose such a special member of our family. Mary & Lew
Larry and Family - My heart goes out to all of you. Pam sounded like a wonderful wife and mom. I will be thinking of you. The service from First Presbyterian by Rev. Blivek will be very nice. That is a lovely church. Take care. I know what it is like to lose a dear spouse.
