To Janie and all of the Grant family members,

I offer my most sincere condolences and prayers to each of you during this time of personal sorrow. I thought the world of Pat and always appreciated how she treated and accepted me. Pat was the most beautiful and lovely lady and she will certainly be missed, but I know that she lives on in the hearts and memories of family and all who knew her.
