Pamela Southall Death, Obituary – We wish to express our deepest condolences as we inform you of the passing of our cherished Link sister Ms. Pamela Linette Southall. Pam was a shining example of grace, optimism, courage, and enduring faith. In 2016, the Chesapeake/Virginia Beach (VA) Chapter recognized her as a worthy recipient of this honor. Despite the fact that our bond with her has been severed, we are able to find solace in the loving and joyful memories we have of our time spent together. Our thoughts, prayers, and support are with Pat Smithty and his family during this difficult time. We pray that our beloved Pam will finally find rest in heaven. #TheLinksInc #EALinks #CVBLinks #LinkedIn
Posted on withrepost by @patsmithty and @withrepost. My Dear Sister Pamelita made the transition to be with the Lord yesterday morning in a beautiful way, and I thank the Lord that HE allowed me to be there for her very last breath!!!! I really, really wanted to tell each and every one of you this right away, but to be completely honest, my heart was so broken, and my body was so weak!!! When she made the transition, a significant portion of me was severed!!! The bond between sisters is very strong! Pam and Pat have been there for me throughout my entire life!
And despite the fact that some of our experiences as sisters were among our most trying, we were never anything other than Pam and Pat!!! Not only was she my sister, cheerleader, comforter, friend, and friend who kept my secrets, but she also took on the role of mothering me when our precious mother passed away when we were at such a young age!!!
As I sit here, the thought of spending the next few days without her completely overwhelms both my mind and my heart… This world will never be the same if Pamela Linette Southall is not a part of it!!!
I would like to thank YOU ALL for your love, support, prayers, and encouragement!!!!
Due to the advanced stage of her colon cancer, her outlook was not good!!!
However, the LORD rewarded her and the rest of us with an additional four years and two months!!!!
I give thanks and glory to the Lord for all of these things and so much more!!
