Patricia was a very kind loving person and a wonderful neighbor when we lived in Twinsburg. I still remember the day when they were moving in across the street from us. Her daughter Yamila and my daughter Cidney hit it off from the start, and it was very difficult when we moved to Japan, however they still remain close today. Patricia will be missed. Rest in peace.

Where to begin... We lived across the street when Patricia and Jose moved in. I recall the instant friendship between Yamilla and Cidney. I recall when Matthias was born and Cidney was 7. When we move away across the world, it was difficult to leave good friends behind. Patricia was always a good friend and neighbor. She confided in me only this April. The Lord took her much too soon. You will he missed.

To Patricia's family,
I just loved your mother/grandmother and was so sad to hear that we've lost her. I worked with Patricia at St. Benedict School and always enjoyed talking to her over lunch and at school. She was a wonderful teacher and was always so lovely and caring to everyone. She was so very proud of you, her children and grandchild, sharing beautiful pictures and stories. I will miss her, as will all of her students and co-workers, who also loved and cared about her. May your happy memories of Patricia help you through this very sad time. My prayers are with you all.
