Pat ALWAYS was quick to give me and others a beautiful smile, regardless of what was on her mind or how she was feeling. I loved Pat and her warm smile. We will all miss her beautiful quilts and her presence...Thinking about and praying for you, Dick, and all of your family at this difficult time of adjusting to life here without her...Blessings for peace and a "heavenly perspective"...

Pat was my best friend when I lived in Wisconsin as a teenager. As we grew we shared a lot of good times and even visited me in Pennsylvania. We were in each other’s weddings of which I have fond memories. My oldest son was born on her birthday. We were born four days apart ourselves. I always thought the world of Pat and know she was a loving wife, mother and grandmother as she was a wonderful friend. My deepest sympathies to Dick and her children and I know she will be missed by all the people she touched in her life. Rest In Peace, my friend! I loved you as a sister and you will always be in my thoughts and prayers. Carol
