So sorry to all of Pat’s family. She was so proud of you and loved you.

Pat and I go back a long way. We walked together to Junior High and High School and were such good friends. I was privileged to be a bridesmaid at Dwayne and Pat’s wedding so many, many years ago.

Sorry I couldn’t have been with you when you renewed your vows in January. She was really excited about it.

Pat was truly a dear, sweet friend, and I will miss her.

I had the pleasure of meeting Pat, Duane and their two dogs when calling bingo at The Villas of Hollybrook. I will miss seeing her at "her" table and her sweet spirit and kindness. We talked a lot about race cars being from Indy. Thoughts and prayers extended to the family. She will be missed by many.
