Dear Johnnie, We met over pizza after September's reunion when I wanted to treat Pat because of her kindness to me. God blessed you both--she told me in e-mails how wonderful you are, about the camper, cottage and new house. Now she has no pain or worries, but we still miss her so much. Frank Deaton sent her obituary today. She loved and appreciated you so much and I loved her. You and Allen are in my thoughts and prayers. Bonnie Ranville D'Ettorre, class of '53.

Pat, thanks-your persistence got us to the 2005 and 2010 reunions. I enjoyed our emails about our Spanish-American War grandfathers and appreciated the copy of the book "The Memoirs of Robert Howell" which you gave me. Pat, your "Restaurant Reports" helped me stay in touch with my classmates. The class and Fairborn will miss you. God Bless you. Sam Miller Class of " 55".

Pat and I became email friends after we found each other in our Pugh family research project. We finally got to meet each other in person many years later. I will miss Pat as a close friend. My condolences go out to her family and friends.
