Default Sad news!!!

We have just received word that Pam Kane better known as Pamda here on Cruisemates has passed away. Our deepest sympathies go out to Queeg over the untimely loss of his wife. Pam was a staff member here on Cruisemates not too long ago and traveled with many of us on the first Get Leid cruise. Her input and humor will be missed.

I just heard the news in an email from Andy. Pam was "one of a kind" and will always treasure my memories of her on the Hawaii cruise and the Pflamingo Pfrolic party at their house. She and Andy will be in my thoughts today, and I will forever think of her and smile when I see a pflamingo.

I had just heard this as well, and it is indeed a sad day for her family and for all cruise enthusiasts who enjoyed her writing skills, and her sense of humor.

A special prayer today for Pam, Andy and the family, from all their CruiseMates friends!

I sit her at my desk and look at the picture of the Hawaii Cruise, where the arrival of several people at the pre-party was a surprise to her and Andy, especially MGram and I. Also, I keep her book "Happy Sails" out on the bookshelf and opened up to read her handwritten note to me, as well as those (me included) she acknowedged in the dedication.

Many good memories as she has now sailed away .....

She was a lovely person.

Robin and I are also sad to hear of her passing. Although we've never met her, we feel that we know her a little from her humorous and witty postings. A prayer will go out to her family.

I only "met" Pam here on CM in the early days, and never had the pleasure of meeting her. Isn't she the one who wrote a book on cruising? Condolences go out to Queeg and her extended CruiseMates family.

I too will miss Pam a great deal. Jose and I met her, and many other Cruise Mates, on the first Let's Get Lei'd cruise and felt ourselves privileged to have known her and spent time with her. In Mgram's third picture that's Pam on the right, egging Andy on as he inducts Jose and me into the Ancient and Royal Order of Plamingos! Oh what happy times we had! My most sincere condolences go out to Andy and the kids. Pamda is now sailing on into eternity. May she rest in peace.

Helen and I send our condolences to Andy and family. We first met her at the Hawaian Village in Honolulu prior to our Get Lei'd cruise in May 2002. She was surprized with the Welcome party that her friends gave her. Then she and Andy were our tablemates during the cruise from Honolulu to Vancouver. She was a delightful person and will be a great loss.

This makes me so sad.....I never met Pam in person but we exchanged emails about my dad and his Alzheimers and moving him down here and she was always so kind.
Andy and family, I'm so sorry.

I am very sad to hear this news. I inquired several months ago about Pamda as I missed seeing her posts. I never received a response to me e-mail. She always had such a wonderful sense of humor and fabulous writing style. I never heard that she was ill and am now very sad to hear she has passed. I remember her with a smile and am appreciative for excellent advice she once shared with me.

Stilling here in a state of shock-- we had just e-mailed each other a few weeks ago-- me just checking in with her---asking of she remembered me-- she said how could anyone forget that smile--- and all I can think of is how could anyone forget Pamda !!
Andy---- Cpt Andy--- Queeg----- my heart goes out to you--- and your family for such a great loss -------if only I could express myself in words the way she did--------she have the perfect humors way of telling us not to worry that things will be ok and that she is just out cruising -- this time above the clouds
Cheers to you Pamda
You will alway have a special place in my heart----with our love of cruising
April

Shocked and saddened by the news, Tweety. I only met Pam once, at a Cruise Mates get together at the Marriott in Fort Lauderdale, but we corresponded and talked on the telephone frequently. She was a brilliant, articulate, witty and vivacious person whose love of life, the sea and the ships that sail on it was both obvious and infectious. She was unpretentious and a delight to know.
