There has not been a sweeter person to walk the planet than Aunt Pat. I feel so fortunate to have known her. She was kind and loving and I hope we can all be inspired by her childlike joy and steady peace. Love and condolences to all who now miss her.

Pat was such a beautiful lady. She wrote such beautiful songs about how much she loved God to share and inspire others. I spoke with her at church just a few short weeks ago and she was so happy to be back. She loved her family very much. Rest In Peace with Jesus sweet Pat you will be missed. Til we meet again ❤️🌸

I met Pat through church. What a wonderful Christian woman she was. She loved her family, her employer and most of all Jesus!
I smile now thinking of her reunion with her beloved husband . I can see her sitting with Jesus having a very long chat. Rest in peace Pat.
Love to you, JoAnn
