    In loving memory of Pamela H. Leeder, Pam was one of the greatest people ive ever been able to call my friend. She was a big part of my early childhood and I will always remember my brother Tony and I staying at her home on the weekends and going to the movies with her and Jack. She instilled the love of ceramics in me at an early age and she was tremendously Tallented at paint pieces and helping us get better at it. I will always have a Place in my heart for her and will miss her deeply.
