Pat, was a sweet lady that always told you like it was. Always willing to give you and hand in anyway possible. I knew of her before I ever got to work with her, because she was a teammate others thought every highly of. Once I got to work with her, I found out what that wonderful reputation was all about. She had tons of wisdom and didn't mind sharing it. I learned a great deal from her and was giving some key pointers about retirement. I remember the JOY and Smile she had on her face surrounded by all the Red Hat Ladies, friends and family at her retirement party. She was truly loved.
She will be Missed, but never Forgotten.
