I am very sad to have received the news of my dear friend Pat passing.
She and I always had so much fun together, while working together and even after she became very sick. I felt very special to have been able to share this time of her life with her.
Pat always had a smile, and always found the brighter side of things. Her wonderful smile and laugh was infectious.
Leonard and her family was the center of her world and her heart, and she loved to tell stories about them all. I always loved hearing the stories about her family, as much as she enjoyed telling them.
My deepest sympathy to all her family and you will all be in my prayers in the days and months ahead. I am at peace for her because I know she is with the her love , Leonard, at last.

I am so sorry for your loss, Russell and Shannon. I worked with your mother at Social Security for many years and she spoke of you and her grandchildren all the time.You were the loves of her life. We spoke just recently and of course, she was bragging about her children. She will be missed as she was a special person.
