I am sad that I will never get to see her smile again. She always made me feel at home when I visited Debbie at their home. She was always trying to sell us poor girls Tupperware. Beautiful soul. Sorry I did not know until today about the service or I would have been there.

First of all,I would to thank this family for letting me share and be apart of Pat's life. I don't believe that I have ever met a soul as beautiful as hers. Even though her life was being taken away by a horrible disease she was so happy. There wasn't a day Pat didn't greet me in the morning,whether she was at the door or coming up the hall. Never once did she miss a day, I never knew if I was going to play median or get what I would call the hug deluxe!!! Not only was she the best hugger but her back scratch was the top. And so it went I would in return scratch her back which led to our morning dance.. We shared the same birthday,that was great Pat asked me how old I was? When I said 46,she laughed and said she also was 46..I probably could go on much longer but just know this sweet soul touched my heart very deeply and when she left she took it with her. Forever in my thoughts and prayers. Love,Tanya
