Carol Stein, fellow entertainer and pianist at EPCOT stated, “she has a following because she made everybody feel special. She was the entertainer, but she focused her energy on the guests, making them all filled with joy and happiness.”

Eric Pinder, former EPCOT performer, commented, “she really had a way of connecting with people and making them feel like they were a part of this big family in the pub. I always loved sitting with her backstage, too, because she was very mischievous.”

Mario Rios, longtime friend of Brody, shared, “she touched everyone. And she is considered a legend at Epcot.”

Fans have also taken to social media to share their condolences of beloved Pam Brody.
