I always thought she loved to talk to me about really anything but now i realize she was like this with everyone that walked into her shop .what a beautiful soul .she could never say no even when i bought her a uniform order and i would tell her i needed it tomorrow. Her answer would be OK .and also you knew that if you walked in there you to spend aleast 30 min of your time to chat with her

I did not know your beautiful Mother but reading all of her messages, she seemed to be a remarkable person inside and out.

We are so sorry for your loss and pray the family finds peace of mind and acceptance.

Sincerely,
Kristine Mejia and Family.

Rest In Peace Pat...always so helpful and willing to assist in any way she could....I always felt at home when I would come in to see Pat. Every uniform I ever bought was from
Pat. She always took the high road in The competitive soccer world and always had a kind word & a loud laugh. One of a kind.....Dan, Caroline, Alice & Natalie.

What an amazing lady.
She gave me my first job. Entrusted me with her club soccer from the very beginning. I will always cherish that vote of confidence she had in me. She was always there when I needed her. God has a dear friend now with him. God Bless you Miss Pat!

Pat was such a gracious, kind, outgoing, beautiful person. She was someone I could share my feelings and thoughts with and who always took the time to listen. I will miss her smiling face. Thoughts and prayers to her family.

As a classmate from “Sharon”, my prayers for a peaceful rest for Pat and a shared sorrow with her Loved Ones for their great loss.
In faith, a belief that she will always be looking over and protecting her children, grandchildren and friends.

I met Mrs Pat in 2002 when my brother Glenn went into her store for some cleats. She’s been my friend ever since. She even called me several time throughout the years to let me know that I was always in her thoughts and prayers. When Jada passed she called me almost every week for about 6 months to make sure I was doing ok.
You will surely be missed my friend. I haven’t been to heaven yet but I was told it’s a wonderful place. Take care of my little one up there until we meet again.

Ms Pat was so unfailingly kind to me when I was working with Lafreniere Soccer and the New Orleans soccer community. She was generous beyond measure and so incredibly patient. She had so many gifts, and I’m thankful to Briana and Greg for sharing her with us all these years. I’m sure her reunion with her husband after all these years was a special one. Thanks, Ms Pat, for everything. You’re missed already.

We’ve known Ms Pat since our oldest started playing soccer back in 2004. For 15 years we would go to her for just about everything soccer (and sometimes not soccer) related. She was a true supporter, great friend and mentor. She took great care of our girls when we would come into the store. We will miss her and her unwavering support! RIP Ms Pat. ~ The Cano’s

We will miss our time with Mrs Pat as we visited with her at Club Soccer. She always had time to chat and advise our boys , not only about gear but also about the “ love of the game” and Jordan and Connor’s experiences as they played first club and then added high school soccer and eventually as they coached. Her kindness and genuine interest in their wellbeing will never be forgotten. Our condolences to her family and prayers for the repose of her soul.
With love,
The Perret Family
