We were lost when my sister died of cancer in the Summer of 2017. Beyond the grief and confusion, my brother-in-law, my parents and I were left to think about Joyce's memorial. My sister was very clear about what she wanted and didn't want. But none of us had been to a "celebration of life" and what does the look and feel like?
While my brother-in-law started the planning, I called Pam Dvorak. Pam became a wonderful resource immediately in many ways, big and small. Pam asked a lot of questions, listened and immediately started making an impact - from providing referrals for venues and caterers to offering help in designing and printing the programs.
Pam pulled together hundreds of photos, quotes, videotapes and songs that become the backdrop of my sister's celebration of life. And she found speakers, mics and other equipment for the speeches that became a keystone of my Joyce's memorial.
Beyond Pam's professional and organization skills (event planning, graphic design, photography, etc.), Pam is one of the most authentic and highly intuitive people I know. She genuinely wants to be of service to those she can help. I wholeheartedly recommend Pam for celebration of life services.
I had the pleasure of collaborating with Pam Dvorak during one of the least pleasurable times of my life; planning my Mother’s Memorial Service.
I didn’t know where to begin; but after the first consultation with Pam, I knew we shared a vision. Pam was full of ideas and she put me at ease and gained my full confidence that she could help create a beautiful memorial for my Mother.
I handed Pam two hundred loose photographs, a sister’s sketch, a poem and a bunch of handwritten notes from friends and relatives. She transformed these items into beautifully designed memorial booklets, a collection of testimonials from loved ones and a sequenced photo display. Pam’s attention to detail and creative solutions produced a collection of beautiful keepsakes for the entire family.
I would highly recommend Pamela Dvorak for all memorial planning engagements. She was professional, dependable and a pleasure to work with. Pam has a high level of expertise and is passionate about providing her services to others.
