What can I say Pat? It was a blessing to care for you during your last month of life here in this world. It will make it easier to remember all the wonderful things about you etched in my mind. You were always there for others. I can’t wait to see your beautiful face again one day!

Pat you were truly inspiring to me. I never saw you without a smile…you never greeted me without a hug. You made me feel special and welcomed me as though we had always been friends and even though I only knew you for a short time you touched my heart forever. I am so glad that I got to see you that last time you visited Indiana. I know heaven rejoices as yet another saint has made the journey home….but those left behind weep that such a beautiful and lovely lady has left our presence…..walk along the streets of gold….sing of heavenly choruses…..take Jesus by the hand and let him love you face to face now…..forever in his eternal care…..someday soon…..we all will be united in a magnificent God family reunion over there…..

Just a note to say thank you ladies for signing. Mom was truly a special blessing to me and I have found out how much she meant to others as well, and that really touches my heart. Lisa, you also helped me during a hard time as well…when I had trouble with my stepdad and you also thought of me when I was in stress care. So don’t think you didn’t help us as well! 🙂 Julie, we had some good times!! I about cried when I saw you wrote “Let him love you face to face now”… little do you know that a song called “Face to Face” by Kim Clement was one of mom’s favorites and we sang it in church last Sunday and I was so happy because I know mom is with Him, face to face. Toby, thank you for all you have done! I love each one of you. God bless!!

Pat, we will all miss you! I am forever grateful to God and to you for that one day you walked into Pizza Hut in Ellettsville long ago, and offered to take me to church because my mom wouldn’t take me. It was that day that forever changed my life as I have went to church and truly made Jesus #1 since then. I know that over the years you helped so many people just like this, and I know all of us can say we are so grateful! See u someday soon in glory!!! Michael

Pat’s smile made her one of the prettiest women I’ve ever seen. She was the light of every party or gathering that I’ve been to with her. I know she’d been through some hard times, but that smile never went away. Her laugh was contagious and I never heard her say a bad word about anyone. I’m truly blessed to have known her, even if it was for a short time. She will be missed, but heaven is getting their angel back.

Not once did I see Pat without her beautiful smile. She loved life and her kids! She will be remembered by those she touched, including myself.
