Pat was such a lovely person, inside and out. Always patient and kind. We had many conversations together especially during my years at Sacred Heart Parish. I was very fond of her and missed her when I moved away. You all were so blessed to have such a wonderful mother. You’re all in my thoughts and prayers.

My dear friend. I can hardly believe the time has come for you to rest in the arms if our Holy Father. There are not enough words to express what you meant to me and my children. When I was spiritually lost, you led me to the place of peace. You helped me raise my children. You were there to laugh with me and to dry my tears. You were my guiding light and I will sorely miss you. I could go on and on but I will end by saying thank you for teaching me the good in life. I am a better person for having known you. My heartfelt condolences to your beautiful family. Love, Barb

I am so sorry to hear of Pat's passing. She was a wonderful lady and will be missed by so many. Pat helped me meet my husband. She went with me to my first R.C.I.A class, my husband was sponsoring his cousin. If she had not gone with me that evening I would have been in a different class and might not have met my husband.

God's peace, Kelly and family. I worked with your mom "back in the day" at Joy. She was a great friend and a terrific mentor. Such fond memories of our time together.
