My sincere condolences to the family who i pretty much in a make believe world had adopted. I would always tell my husband when playing the music of The Emotions that those were my aunts. I told my mom on last Monday had either one of them
ever passed away I would be off from work on bereavement because they were my family. Then a couple days after saying that my mom went to my sisters' home and found her deceased. So as I pray for this family(my adopted family)... Please pray for my family here in Dallas, Texas. May God be with us all.

I did not know Pamela, but have been a fan and long time friend of Cathy Hutchinson here in Lincoln, Nebraska. We have conversed quite often about the family's singing prowess and how it's all about the music that the Emotions and all of the Hutchinson family have given to the public all these decades of 60 years. I just wanted to add my condolences to a proud and wonderful singing family. You have lost a young voice of the family. May peace be with you and Pamela. Your friend, Clark Besch

I grew up listening to the music of The Emotions. They remain my favorite group of all time. It was amazing to watch Pamela take the place of Jeanette in the group in 1977 while she was still a teenager. Flowers, I Don't Wanna Lose Your Love, Best of My Love, A Feeling Is and Blessed are my favorites along with Boogie Wonderland. Thanks for sharing your music, beauty and talent with the world. My sincere condolences are extended to her daughter and the entire Hutchinson family.
