OUR PAMELA HAS GONE HOME
6 years ago
| Blue Label

I COME TODAY TO SHARE SOME VERY SAD NEWS.  OUR PAMELA WENT HOME TO REST YESTERDAY, FEBRUARY 15, AND NOW WE HAVE A DUTY TO DO FOR HER...WE MUST CELEBRATE HER LIFE !

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

'Tis with broken heart and tears of green

I come to you this sad, sad day

My own wee Sister has been seen

In Ireland ... she has found her way

The fastest way she could go home

Was by the lightest flight

Her Spirit lifted her away

She'll sleep in Eire tonight ...

Godspeed, my Girl, my Lass !

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Pamela Waller... to all who knew her..... 5:10 AM

I am at a loss for words...
My heart cries as I am saddened by the news...

I shed a tear for our "Dear Friend"
May "Pamela" rest in peace as her life here as an Angel has touched the hearts of many.

I thank God for her friendship, and what time I was able to spend with her.

 Pamela will be missed dearly...
        We Love You &  
    Will Never Forget You!!!

I can't get past the tears of sadness my heart feels.
I know Pamela doe's not want us to grieve and be sad...
I just know how much I'll miss her.

 
Pamela, such a great Spirit she shared with many.
Her words of magic flowed from her heart and touched the lives of others...So young...



           
 We Love & Miss You Dearly

 

Forever in our Hearts...

Dear Warren and Janice.... Warren, I appreciate how you must be feeling right now, for I know that there were plans for future things with Pamela. I am sorry for not contacting you and Janice right away...I have been taking care of things for Pamela. I was going to email both of you today but had unexpected problems with my computer. Janice...I am so sorry you both had to learn in probably the same way I did...through an email. I did receive one from Pamela's daughter, as well. There will be a viewing and a service this coming Friday. I know without asking that you will both be holding her in your hearts for now, then and for always. Bless you both, and don't forget that we are a familly here, whether we can come in frequently or not. Life happens and that must be dealt with on a daily basis. We will never forget our girl, nor will this group be closed. Pamela turned over the group to me some time ago with a promise from me that if anything ever happened to her, I would make sure with all that I have, to keep her efforts up and running and not to lose sight of the purpose of this group...to spread the beauty of the concept of Poetry Sheets....that is something that we all will be keeping alive in her memory...the beautiful sheets that she and Christopher were so gracious to share with us here and elsewhere. Alweays know that I am here for any of the members in this group and this wonderful gift to us all from Pamela shall not ever fade away. I share with you and everyone the loss of my beloved "sister" of my heart...a large part of my soul and my own wee lass. I ask that anyone associated with this group in a co-host category please contact me to let me know your feelings on this whenever you feel ready to do so. Thanks, guys and gals...we have to be strong now...strong for ourselves, each other, for the people we make contact with in our daily lives...and for Pamela and her dream.

Love always... Linda

I don't know why....but someone today on Pamela's IM in yahoo...where we spoke every single day..and we were on the phone every day and night...we were like closer then sisters.  Someone wrote  and I copy'd this exactly 

Pamela Waller: Jandi=phony=heartless=greedy=go to hell!

Anyone that knows me knows how close we were.  I am sick in my heart that they also blacklisted me from netlog.com and blocked me. and took me off as her friend all over the place..even here on care2.  

Someone tell me what is happening.  she was the sister of my heart!!  My mentor, my friend, my confident!

I love you Pamela sissy, I don't know what happened.  I am just sick.

Jandi

6 years ago

Jandi...my girl, I am so sorry that this has happened to you.  I don't understand it, either, as nobody has done anything to Pamela's family to warrant such treatment.  I am in hopes that Pamela's family will somehow contact this group, or me personally, to speak and possibly we could find out just what seems to be the matter ?  If Chrissy or Annette, or any of the boys, are reading, please be so kind and polite, as your Mother always was, and contact me so that we can discuss this? I cannot see where anything could have been done by Jandi or anyone else, for that matter, here in Care2, to make such actions be an issue to you and to warrant such sad behavior.  We are all in shock and sadness over the loss of your dear Mother and our sweet friend of many years.  I feel sure that your grief may be a causing factor in this and hope that we can clear things up and go on from there... losing your Mother was hard enough, but she would be so horribly upset at this now.

Please get in touch with me, if you will...we only want to get through this grief, just as you all do.  My very sincere condolences to your family in the loss of your Mom.  I have made several attempts to speak with you, and have only heard from Chrissy about how to get the song out of the computer.  I think you could at least make an effort to be civilized and not this other. I am in hopes that this can all be worked out... 

Can someone turn this into a Sheet Poem?

NOT FORGOTTEN ~ by Warren Jeffrey Motter
 
You said you wished to travel
Quite far, across the sea
You told us how your very soul
Was longing to be free
 
Now that you have gone away
To that far, far place
We are waiting for the day
When we shall see your face
 
CHORUS:
Though you are gone
You’re not forgotten
You may be gone
But, not that far
Although you’re gone
Never forgotten
For, you’re a part
Of who we are
 
The power of your stories
You always told so well
Still ring within our opened minds
As clearly as a bell
 
Though you may have gone away
We’re not far apart
United, we all still remain,
Deep down within the heart
 
CHORUS:
Though you are gone
You’re not forgotten
You may be gone
But, not that far
Although you’re gone
Never forgotten
For, you’re a part
Of who we are
 
Right now, we can’t be with you
But, one day, we will
You seem very far away
Yet, you are with us, still
 
Someday, we will meet again
Not too long from now
Patiently, those left must wait,
Until that day, somehow
 
CHORUS:
Though you are gone
You’re not forgotten
You may be gone
But, not that far
Although you’re gone
Never forgotten
For, you’re a part
Of who we are

Hi Janice...sweetie, this is so nice, your write for Pamela.  Every sentence is a true statement of the character that she "has" and you have highlighted them with your words and they are all so true.  She remains a beacon in decency, kindness, loving nature, tactfulness and in the art of being a true friend.  It shall always remain so, my friend, and thank you from me for making this sheet and tribute to her.  All of these shall remain in this group forever and shall remain a standard for us all to follow....I know I shall always strive to be as she "is"...

Love, Linda

Warren,
That is so amazing, so beautiful!!!  You made me cry!!!
I can't wait to see what Linda creates, I know it will be beautiful...

Blessings to you!!!

Linda,
You have touched my heart, and I Love You Too!!!!

Jandi,
Hang in there my friend.  I know this is tough, but we together can get thru these hard times.  I lost my best friend three years ago, and it was so hard, it still is, but, I know he is watching over me and he is a peace.

We Love You!!!

~Peace & Love~Janice~

Oh Warren....your song is so touching and true.  The beauty of your heart shines in it and Pamela must be aching to hear you sing it....I know she just loves your music.  Do you think that one day we will be able to hear it, too ?? That would be so great....the music to go with your beautiful poem.  I have made a sheet for your words.  It is a rose...and how our girl loved them!!  A faded rose, so that your words will show on it to perfection !!  I don't know how many of them it will take yet...for songs are longer in length, but am working on it right now.   Y'all stay tuned.

i just know it will be beautiful. This world is a lesser place without our Pamela. But, those of us who remain must continue to shine the Light of Love for all to see. Thanks to everyone who will keep their Inner Light of Life shining because of what Pamela shared through her Shining Example.

Aw, Warren ... tears are good for the soul, man.  I wanted  your beautiful song to have sheets with roses, that way, Pamela is probably crying along with you...she loved roses and she loved your music...(and she liked my sheets)...lol...sooo, I am very glad that you're happy with them...my pleasure !!

Hey Warren...these are YOURS !!  I made the sheets, but they aren't private.  No, when I make someone a sheet for their poem it is my privilege and the whole thing belongs to you, Warren ...go for it !!!  Did you get the ones I sent to you in Care2 messaging??  I had to use two emails, but did send them to you for copy/paste or saving !!

Thanks, Warren.... I learned from two sources:  Pamela, and my dogs.  Not so strange as you might think...they both are excellent sources !!  I am only trying to handle things and take care of things as she would do.  I watched her do her very magnificent job for years and we talked about it many, many times.  The woman is unbelievable !!!

And, you are also unBelievable, as well, Linda. Your smile and your attitude are quite infectious (in an extremely wonderful way). Pamela's smiling, for certain.

I lost the rest of the message I was typing...the pic knocked it off....I think I am going to start writing all about my fun time with Pamela....it hasn't been dull !!!  She would get blue, depressed or tired and would call me.  I would ask her what was wrong and she would tell me.  Then I would turn on the "Irish" and get crazy with it and have her in stitches !!!  I was most of the time able to pull her out of the funk and we would have a riot of a time on the phone !!!!  oohHHH !!!  I know what we can do in here !!!  We can start a thread calling it Memories of Pamela !!! What do  you all think of that ???????

Pamela was planning to write and direct an original Musical about Shakespeare's father, in Europe, later this year. i was to be doing the main role, with my sweetheart, Sandra, doing the costuming for it. But, recently, i got involved with another project whereby i'm doing the music for an audio book and Sandra is doing one of the voices for a main character (and, i'm doing a couple of voices, too). How was i to explain this to Pamela and tell her that we have to postpone her plans. Well, i never got the chance to say anything.

Now, she knows, and God had the whole thing worked out, somehow (although i'd still love for her project to be accomplished, someday, because she was so very excited about how it would touch people's lives and change everyone into a positive way of viewing life).

6 years ago

Warren, who's to say that it won't ??  Time and circumstance can do many things.  I think that is a wonderful idea, and Pamela had mentioned it many times.  She was so excited about it and of course, now it is what it is ... it is hard to say or even think about the future, isn't it ?? All we really have is the NOW and where we are at the moment.  Of course, plans for immediate future are okay and predictable up to a point.   It is a thing, this play of hers, that may or may not still happen.  That is part of the future now !!  You and Sandy have your NOW to live in !! 

Speaking of now....now, what picture do you prefer ??? lol !!! I ain't giving up !!!

i like the centering in the new pic, but, the coloring in the old. how's that for an evasive answer?

HA AHHHAAAA AND HEE EHEEE !!!  Warren, thee hast made me laugh and waff and giggle...lol !!!  Maybe I should cut the head off the new one and put it on the old one ????  Hmmmmmmm...

With our cable tv setup, we have stations which play various types of music. Just heard some harp music on the one station and said to Sandra, "The Angels are playing their harps for Pamela."

So ye say...lol, Shakespeare !!!  However, I may take it upon meself to "change my mind", so to speak !!!  It is boding well for some good laughs !!!  And aye, I agree....celebration !!!  It shall never end, for our Lady had a lot of time in here on Care2, and there were many, many zany episodes and much laughter...we need to remember these things as Pamela would like, for I would not be surprised if she would be joining in with us in spirit and what a shame for her not to have what she dearly wished for ???

PAMELA'S SONG...THIS ROAD....

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lEpxX3TAsmY

THIS ROAD

I'm just a simple woman

Living a simple life

Wondering what's just before me

On this road I'm on called life

I turn down a corner

Go around just a bend

Wondering what will be before me

For me to experience next

Chorus:

This journey can take you

To your dreams I am told

I have got to stay focused

Just do the best that I can do

~

This road can get narrow

Darkness can join a spell

But I’ll just keep on going

Lightness soon ... will take me far

(up)

I’m just a simple woman

Going down this path called life

Wondering where I will end up

At the end of this road called life

Chorus:

This journey can take you

To your dreams I am told

I have got to stay focused

Just do the best that I can do

(up)

I'm just a simple woman

Living a simple life

Wondering what's just before me

On this road I'm on called life

I turn down a corner

Go around just a bend

Wondering what is before me

For me to experience next

Chorus:

This journey can take you

To your dreams I am told

I have got to stay focused

Just do the best that I can do

(up)

I'm just a simple woman

Living a simple life

Wondering what's just before me

On this road I'm on called life....

I'm just a simple woman

Living a simple life

Wondering what's just before me

On this road I'm on called life....

OH ... ALL THE STARS UP IN THE SKY
SEEMED TO BE THERE IN YOUR EYES

THE NIGHT WAS OH, SO SOFT AND FULL OF SIGHS
THE PLANETS UP ABOVE REVOLVED AROUND
AS WE BEGAN OUR TOUR OF LOVE
SO HAPPILY
I WAS ENRAPTURED

I SEE, OH NOW I SEE
JUST WHY MY LIFE WAS COLD

WAITING FOR YOU
WAITING FOR ME
MAYBE IT’S FATE
OH, NOW I SEE

THE MOON WAS ON A CRAZY, DIZZY RIDE
AND ALL THE SADNESS HELD INSIDE OF ME
FLEW UP TO THE SKY JUST AS YOU
CAUGHT MY EYE
AND SMILED AT ME

AND ALL THE LOVE I WANTED JUST TO SHARE
HAD FOUND A HAPPY HOME AT LAST
FOR YOU WERE THERE
YOU HELD ME FAST
THE MATCHING KEY
TO MY MYSTERY

AND I SEE, OH NOW I SEE
IT WAS MEANT TO BE
JUST YOU AND ME
TOGETHER FOREVER
NEVER SAY NEVER

YOU’RE IN MY HEART

AND NOW WE ARE AS HAPPY AS CAN BE
WE HAVE EACH OTHER DEAR, SO NEVER FEAR
YOU KNOW I’LL ALWAYS HOLD YOU NEAR
WE’RE MEANT TO BE

From persimew

Pamela, a much loved member of Care 2 and a respected writer, died suddenly this week. I wrote this music for her and the only way I could share it with her friends on Care 2 was tomake a video. This video uses some of Pamela's poems and pictures.... She loved all things Celtic and Faerie.... if she can hear this music, I hope she will love it too....

Oh, Persimew....what a beautiful video.  I am almost in tears from seeing Pamela in it...thank you for your kindness and your talent in making this for Pamela.  I know that if she could speak right now, she would be so effused with happiness and her voice would be all girlish and soft and her face would be flushed and her green eyes just sparklin' so ... How beautiful is she and so is your video...
