I am deeply saddened by the sudden death of my dear friend Pat - We go back more than 50 years when we dreamed a thousand dreams. Regretfully different paths and different cities put our friendship on hold until just recently. We were so happy to reconnect and share old times as much as we were eager to learn what life had offered during our time of absence.
To her beautiful children and grandchildren I extent my deepest condolences and may Jesus give you much strength courage and know that your angel mom is looking over you.
I am lost for words:

Your rainbow is waiting on the other side - by H.Stillufsen

p.s. With deepest sympathy to all of Pat's siblings whom i remember with fond memories-

My very deepest sympathies go to Pat's family. I went to high school with Pat in Montreal and we finally re touched with each other a couple of months ago.

The what if... and if only.. I had plans of seeing her towards the end of the month and bring back old memories. I am soooo sorry for your loss.

So sorry to hear of Pat's death . I worked with her for many years in Critical Care at Kingston General Hospital. She was a very good nurse. It was always a pleasure working with her. My thoughts and prayers are with her family .

I am so sorry for your loss. I was one of her "Friday" bridge group members. We had lots of laughs over our bridge games. She was a very good player. She always put out some yummy baking and goodies.
She spoke often of her family and was very proud of her daughters.
My condolences,
Lorie ( now in Vancouver, BC)
