A classmate at Trinity and a very dear friend since then I will miss the cheerful chats we enjoyed over all those years. May the Lord reward her for the good life she led and the joy she brought to others.

Aunt Pat was 90 years young and loved life - she made you feel like you were the most important person in the world - she was an inspiration to my children and so lived by her nephew John! Her faith and love for others will always be remembered,

"Aunt Pat" was an amazing, sweet and loving woman. She always had a kind word and sweet smile for everyone. What a sad day for such a loving, kind family. You are in our hearts and prayers.

I knew Patricia for a long time - I worked at Maintenance at Putnam Green for 27 years. She was a wonderful and funny lady. We had many talks on the phone. She will be missed

Dear John,

Penny and I would like to express our deepest condolences for your loss. We enjoyed so much our friendship with Pat and now feel a deep gap in our lives without her. Pat was a truly generous and inspirational human being - always positive whatever the situation and always caring about others more than herself. We are so grateful to have known her and to know you and Mimi as well. We pray that she is at peace with her husband finally reunited under God's protection. May God be with you both.

Much love, David and Penny
