My deepest condolences to Paul and family. I have many wonderful memories of Pat. We go back so many years! Our mothers were friends and Pat and I went to Morton, Durfee and finally nursing school together. She was a kind and wonderful nurse always with a smile and as beautiful inside as out.
May the Lord bless you all during this difficult time with his strength, his peace that passeth all understanding and his loving support always.
My love and prayers,
Mary {George} Ferguson

I knew Pat when studying nursing at Union Hospital. She was a good friend and a caring and compassionate nurse. Later, I worked with her and not long after she became my supervisor. She was always professional and knowledgeable with a pleasant and happy personality. My condolences to all her family and friends. Shirley Bannister Dufresne

Nana I miss you so much. You became my grandmother when I needed you. It was the year I got diagnosed with NVLD. It's so hard. I promise Terryn will never be alone. I love you and miss you so much!
