My auntie Pat was an important part of my childhood, even though we were in different countries. She bought me my first tennis racket, although my ability didn't ever develop, and introduced me to dry sherry! She was always fun, generous, non-judgemental and supportive, and I wish we'd been able to spend more time with her in recent years, but our trips to Florida will always be a great memory. Thoughts are with Rex, Jane, Neil and the family.

We have fond memories of times spent with our sister-in-law, Pat. Many happy hours have been enjoyed, laughing, eating and drinking together when Rex and Pat came to England for cooler summers, or we travelled to Florida for warmer winters. Family ties are strong and it is difficult to realise we have lost a valued relative from our lives.
Rest in peace, Pat.

Rex, Jane & Niel - so sorry for your loss. Such fond memories of the many times I stayed over in London and was so well looked after. They were great times. Much love and strength to you all,
