I'm deeply saddened to hear of Pats passing. My mom Beth Cox talks of her often.. We just called Kingston Village to set an appt to come see her and I'm now heartbroken we didn't get there sooner. I have some many fond memories of seeing her in the office.. she was so funny and cracked me up all the time. May she rest in peace... ❤

My deepest sympathy to all of Pat's family. She was a longtime friend since childhood as I spent most of my youth at the Griffin house . I have the fondest memories of the great times we all had together. God bless her and may she rest in peace. Sincerely, Bob DeBishop
