Grandma Pat was one of the sweetest people I knew and always had a smile on her face. One of the many things that I will always remember about her was her amazing grape jelly that she made every year. I always looked forward to when she gave my mom a new batch and savored every drop. She will be missed, but I am glad she is no longer suffering. Love you Grandma.

Pat was truly a gracious lady and you said it correctly—never met a stranger. She was one of those people that you felt like you had always known. I remember her coming to my daughter’s dance competitions. And she brought Charles with her. I don’t think he would have come without her. She was so good for him. So upbeat. Heaven is having a grand reunion right about now. I’m sure Pat is catching up with all those that passed before her.
