I am shocked and saddened to hear that Pat has passed. She was a wonderful friend to my Mom and Dad. Along with John they had many years of laughter and shared memories. My thoughts are with you and your family at this difficult time.

With a heavy heart and tearful eyes, I say my final goodbye to my beautiful, caring, loving, sincere cousin who I loved and cherished my entire life. Our lives have been entwined for as long as I can remember. I shall miss her sweet smile, her generosity, her caring ways, her laugh, our conversations and her listening ear when I needed someone to talk too. She was such a loving intricate part of my being. It is hard to imagine how my life will ever be the same with her gone from me. Rest in peace my dear dear cousin, rest in peace. I love you Patti and always will. You hold a very special place in my heart.
