What a joy it was to have known Pat. Thirteen years ago when I was a rookie agent at McEnearney, Pat was so welcoming and played a huge part in my feeling at ease in my new career. Always smiling, happy to chat about just about anything, and a simply a lovely person. My thoughts are with her family and I hope you are at peace knowing Pat will be always be watching over you.

Pat was one of the first agents to reach out to me when I joined McEnearney some years ago. Her kindness and generous spirit were so helpful as I was getting going. We went out socially and she was such great company, telling me of nursing school and early days with her Prince Charming, Alex. I've missed Pat for some years now but am glad her spirit lives on, without the suffering. Warm thoughts and prayers to her other friends and especially to her most beloved family.

I had the privilege of knowing Pat as a colleague at McEnearney Associates. When I first joined the company, she, I and another colleague routinely attended Broker's Open Houses together and we always learned something about the house and real estate and always had fun. She loved her family, her work and her life in general. She will be missed.
