My deepest sympathy to Pat's family. We apologize for not being able to attend her funeral. Please know all of my cousins are in my heart and prayer. Pat was such a wonderful, outgoing, lovely person. I admired her as a wonderful mother, daughter, and cousin.
She had a bright smile and a gift for making all feel welcome and important.
I am sorry to the entire Lamping family for this big loss in your family. I wish you all peace.

Nancy, Janet & family -
So sorry to hear of the loss of your Mom. I came to know her, recently, on my visits to Indy, and I would see her in my Mom's neighborhood, at Oak Trail Drive. I also spent time with your MOM, at St. Paul, where she would be with your Grandmother (her Mom, Eleanor), in physical therapy sessions, and I would be visiting with my Dad. Your Mom was a wonderful woman.
I have also loved getting to know your Grandmother, Eleanor.
My sympathy to your family, at this very difficult time.
Love -
Patty "Short" Ebner, Silver Spring, MD

I’m so sorry for your loss. She was such a great lady. The first time we meant Pat was at Lake Monroe in Bloomington, then I would see her at Penney’s. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the family. RIP Pat. 🙏🏻🙏🏻

To the grandma who filled my grandma’s shoes for many years; I’ll never forget how you treated me as your own. Some of my best memories as a kid are on Lake Monroe on your house boat and in the pool in your backyard. I hope your family finds comfort in knowing you are now in your husband’s arms again. You’ll be missed by so many!!! Rest in heaven ❤️

Sincerest condolences to Chris and all the Lamping family. My heart aches for you as you grieve Pat’s passing. She was a sweet, thoughtful woman I feel blessed to have shared at least one terrific Indy 500 running with.

Such a grand lady; we loved being neighbors with her and Rich. Mike and I have so many wonderful memories of their years on Byrd Drive. Pat's smile and her great laugh were infectious. May all of you find peace in your memories and knowing that Pat was loved by so many. We were privileged to have known her, she was a warm and beautiful soul.

Deepest sympathy to the entire Lamping family.

We remember her so well working in the doctors office. She was always so kind and sweet and Rich was a prince. They were pillars in our community. We will keep your family in our prayers during this difficult time.
