Patricia Joan Trapanese

May 6, 1945October 26, 2018

Do not stand at my grave and weep, I am not there, I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow; I am the diamond glints on the snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain; I am the gentle autumn's rain. When you awaken in the morning's hush, I am the swift uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft star that shines at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry. I am not there; I did not die.

Dear Frank, Mark, David & Shannon,
We send our deepest sympathy to all of Pat's
family. Through many years of friendship
there are so many memories of early years
of sharing our lives & children growing up.
The first memory is a beautiful neighbor at
the door on move-in day saying, "Hi, I'm Pat,
I sat the day aside to help put in shelf paper
while we get acquainted". She was always
this kind and caring beautiful lady. I hope
her deep love for all of you will bring comfort.

Frank, Mark, David and Shannon - My soul sister is free of all that made her suffer in the last years. Pat was a sweet, kind and loving person and we shared MANY great times together. My kids, her kids - all meshed as one happy group!

Frank - I know you made her so happy and you were good together. I send my love to each of you.

Rest in Peace Pat. I love you!
