So many sweet memories of Pat and Joe with my Mom and Dad, (Clarence and Betty Lenear) flood my mind. They went on trips together "over the mountain" to Cherokee and were friends and neighbors for over 40 years. Pat was such a special, loving and giving lady who would do anything she could for you if you needed her. The last few months of her life were hard on her, she saw the death of family and friends and suffered a house fire and a broken hip. But her kindness, her friendly spirit and her strength and faith in God shined thru it all. We send our love, our prayers and our hugs out to Joe, Danny and the rest of the family as you grieve. She is reunited with Jeff and my Mom & Dad and with Bob and all those we lost before and they are having a blessed family reunion up above. And although now our hearts are breaking from the loss and we are sad with grief, what a celebration one day it will be when we all meet again in Heaven! In the meantime, she lives on in our hearts and in our precious memories. God bless you all.
