Christie, Dave, Karen & Families,
Our sincere sympathy to you on the loss of your mother and grandmother. Though I did not know her, Maria has memories of going to her house with Alex when they were at Pres. And Maria’s friendships with Miranda, Olivia and Kristen maintained that contact. So sorry we are unable to be there with you all. Sending our thoughts and prayers, Angela, Frank, Patrick & Maria Jones

To Pat's family,

I met Pat in 1996 while we both worked at Ekstrom Library. Although we were in different departments we became good friends. I left the library in 1993 and moved to Virginia. I saw Pat and other library workers on occasion when I visited family in Louisville . In 2007 I moved back to Louisville and had the pleasure of getting together with Pat for lunch now and then. We always shared news and pictures of our children and grandchildren. Pat was a lovely and kind lady and I will miss her. I am sorry not to attend Pat's funeral but grateful the family understands.

So sorry for your loss. It's been a while since we saw your Mother, but we always admired her. She was such a sweet lady. We remember all of the ball games we watched together pulling for MBS. She is in our thoughts and prayers, as well as all of you.🙏🙏🌹

I sure will miss my Aunt Pat. I visited with her and LeRoy every time I visited Louisville over the years since I was a child. I remember spending a whole summer with the family when I was a kid. Later in life, no trip to Churchill Downs was complete for me without stopping by Southern Heights either before or after the races or both. Pat was the consummate southern woman, I loved her and her sweet tea.

Unfortunately Missy and I will be unable to make the trip from Arkansas, we sure wish things were normal. We send our heartfelt condolences to Kris, Dave and Kay during this time of loss.

We send our condolences,
Jim and Missy Walsh

I will miss my dear Aunt Pat. My memories of being the flower girl in her wedding to my Uncle LeRoy are kind of hazy, but I will always remember her as being a lovely aunt and a devoted wife, mother and grandmother. My condolences to my cousins Christie, David, and Karen and their families.
