Pat has been a Blessing in my life. I just loved her smile and bright outlook on life. She was Fun! We met in Florida through her sister Cindy and became “instant” friends.

Prayers to all of you who call her Family, Friend, Neighbor, Co-Worker, or in whatever way you were connected.

Pam and Penni and family — We were sad to learn of your mom’s death. She was a wonderful woman who always gave back many times more than she received. Her greatest legacy is the terrific family she leaves behind.

She will be in our prayers, as will you, as we celebrate her life and entry into Eternal life.

with deepest sympathy, Michelle and John
