Rich and Family,

Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.
Patty was a bright star in our neighborhood, her smile and laughter will be missed. I will always remember her stories of living on the farm, her early morning walks and her love for dogs! Her gift for sharing the warm love of the Christmas season is something we will never forget, once you entered the house you just did not want to leave! What a special gift she was to all of us.

Gods Peace,
Patty and Mike Goggin

We are saddened by the loss of a good neighbor. The years of sharing times at Christmas in her amazing home will not be forgotten. The occasional conversations at the curb side in the morning were always a nice start to the day!! Rest in peace Pat. Rich and family our thoughts and prayers are with you. Peace
