"To Pam's family my thoughts and prayers are with you at this sad time. Pam & I worked at Quincy Clinic and became friends over our favorite music bands. We went to a "Heart" concert and were just getting to St. Louis to see " Whitney Houston" and she cancelled concert due to a sore throat. It was funny and laughed all the way home. RIP Joanne ( Powers) Bergman"
