I met my dear friend Pat 39 years ago through Lori when we moved up here.My daughter was starting school with Lori and we met and became friends and remained friends. We would go shopping at Woodbury Commons, yard sales and just enjoyed each others company. She loved her children and grandchildren so much. I still can't believe she's gone. I think of her still being at Dawn's. I miss her coming over on the weekend when she would come up to her house. I could tell her anything personal and knew I could trust her with whatever I told her. She was a true friend to me, which you don't find anymore. May she be at peace with her family who have gone before her. She will be with me always .

My Mother was amazing. As sick as she was she never complained. We would always find something to laugh at during chemo, sometimes something inappropriate which made us laugh even harder. I have never met a stronger person in my life. She still gives me strength.

My Mother was such a big part of our lives. Her death leaves such a emptiness in my heart. My Mom gave me strength, she was my friend. We would have great laughs at the silliest things.My Mom had a great sense of humor and a great memory even at the end. She never complained and always said i'm fine i'm doing great. Our lives will never be the same without her.

Back in 1995 when we moved to Greenwood Lake, Pat was so happy to see a family moving in with children who had red hair. She knew right away that we were Irish. Needless to say we turned out to be great friends. She was not just a great neighbor and friend, she was like a grandmother to our three boys as their grandmother was in Ireland. We already miss her very much.
Love Pat, Fionnuala, Owen, Sean, Oisin, and Thomas

The vivid memory I have of your mom was one of the first times I met her - at Patrick's birthday party at the community center. I remember having such a good laugh with her - we laughed about the boys a lot. I am so sorry for your loss - heaven is that much richer for earth's loss. Lynn Schnalzer and the Schnalzer family.

The loss of your mom will be hard, but keep her alive with your memories.

I will add one to your memory bank:

Many years ago, Jerry and I were visiting and spent the night. Pat had taken a turkey out to thaw and we all anticipated a wonderful turkey dinner the next day! That was not to be! In the middle of the night, your dog decided it wanted turkey as well and wasn't willing to wait until it was cooked! The turkey was pulled onto the floor and devoured before we realized what was happening! I don't remember what we ate instead, but the memory of the dog and the eaten turkey will always be with me.

Much love to you all.

Aunt Phyllis
