The last five years have been very difficult for Pam. She lost her job and was forced to sell her home in Nashville, TN. Shortly afterwards, her mother began having serious health problems and needed support, leading Pam to relocate Northern California in 2013. At that time, she left all of her belongings in storage in Nashville, not expecting that it would take 3.5 years to find a permanent home.
The good news is that she has finally found a place to call her own in Northern CA. However, we are now faced with new challenges. Currently, Pam is both financially and emotionally stretched to the breaking point. She is living on a small fixed income, and is providing full-time support to her mother, who has dementia and other health problems. Her laptop, which she relies on heavily for her work and creativity (it contained all of her original recordings, sheet music, etc.) has recently met an unfortunate end, and needs to be replaced.
To top it all off, almost all of her belongings, are still in storage in Nashville, costing $250/month. One of the things in storage is her beloved piano, a Steinway that she purchased when she was just 24. On this piano, she wrote "Who Do You Say I Am?," "Dwell on These Things," "Holy Union," and many others, and co-wrote "Sparrow Watcher" and "Jordan" with Rich Mullins. She doesn't want to keep paying for the storage, but is unable to pay to move everything to CA. Even moving everything herself is cost-prohibitive.
Pam was beginning to feel that the only option she has at this point might be to sell everything, including the piano. She reached out to friends for ideas, and the response was unanimous - PAM SHOULD KEEP HER PIANO!!!!
We (friends and family of Pam) have started this campaign to help her do just that. The funds raised here will be used to pay professional movers to transport her piano and other belongings from Nashville, TN to Oroville, CA. We hope to be able to have her moved by the end of June 2016, so that she won't have to pay another month of storage. If you know and love Pam, or have ever been inspired by her music, please help her out during this difficult time. Anything you can give would be profoundly appreciated, and will help her be able to continue to create. To show her gratitude, Pam will send everyone who donates a thank-you CD gift of 7 previously-unreleased songs she's written and recorded over the past 35 years.
