I only met Pat through her daughter Lori and son-in-law Rob Greer. She had a spirit that is rare to this world and that shined through her daughter also. She left the world with a kinder spirit to everyone that she came in contact with. I am so sorry for your loss.

Mike and I were sad to hear of Pat’s death. She was a sweet and cheery presence at Mt. Hope UMC for many years. She’ll be missed.

Aunt Pat always knew how to make us laugh. My favorite memory is that she never forgot how much I loved gummy bears and always send me some at Christmas even when I couldn’t make it back to Michigan to get them in person.

Cousin Patty ….
I was truly saddened yesterday when I received the call from Mark informing me of your passing. God certainly blessed you with your ability to light up the darkest room with your little candle. Keitha and I also feel very blessed to have had an opportunity to get together last summer and chat for hours. I will never ever forget your wonderful infectious and truly honest laugh and smile (just like Aunt Marcia). You were so special, always thinking of others as you opened your home and backyard to host events for those who’s life was more challenged than yours with eyesight problems and giving little children the opportunity to truly enjoy the spirit. of unencumbered space as your backyard was like the most beautiful park. And finally your sheer joy when talking about Nikki, Mark and all beautiful things that come with family. Your warmth will always be with them and they will feel it when they most need it.
I will miss you and love you ….. forever.
