Pat Thomas was my aunt. What a delight she was to share time with, especially throughout my childhood. One important aspect of who Patricia Thomas was is that she was a generous and giving soul.
She will be missed, but is at last reunited with her loved ones who have been waiting on the other side. No more worries, no more pain, no more anything except pure happiness and joy. She truly is in a better place.
