I don’t know if Pamela and Jim were definitely soul mates, but if they weren’t, I would say the two of them, definitely were something close to that.
They had built a solid (even though stormy) relationship throughout the years, they had spent together and cared for each other.
As for Patricia Kennealy, I see her as an old delusional woman… She was one of Jim’s numerous one night stands, and even though he may have appreciated her company and the time spent with her, during their fling, at the time, I think it was just that… She admitted this several years ago, in the 80s, but since the Oliver Stone movie it seems she is now seeing things totally differently and that her memory suddenly changed quite a lot.
The fact, though is that nobody takes her seriously. She is a bitter, delusional woman who tries to convince herself that she is Mrs Morrison, and that she was Jim one and only love. She is a liar and her venomous attitude towards almost all Jim’s friends and of course Pamela, does nothing to make her sound credible.
Concerning Pamela’s life after Jim’s death, I would say it was a highway to hell… She had to fight the remaining Doors members in court, was facing big financial problems and was having a very hard time being recognized as Jim’s common law wife.
I think she was facing a very big nervous breakdown. For whatever reason, it was, she felt deeply responsible of Jim’s death and after all these years spent with him, I think she was absolutely lost without his love, caring and protection.
She had quite a lot of flings with other men. Some of her friends said this was her way to try to forget Jim, but this obviously did not worked.
I do not really believe in the theory that she committed a suicide… But there will be more talk and more explanations about the way we think she most probably died in the book.
