I knew Pat ever since I was old enough to know her. We use to go to the beach together when no one else wanted to go with her she would always ask me. She took me and my mom (Ellen) with her on vacation with her family to the mountains. I would sometimes go with her to go dancing I loved that lady even though I got married and had my own life I never forgot about her thank you Pat for all the sweet memories . Now you are at rest I will always love you.

I met Ms. Pat at church—the best place to meet a friend! I loved her spry self; I loved to hear her and Mr. Stanley sing—they were such a beautiful Blessing. She and I went on a trip to her mountain home a few years ago where we truly bonded. We stayed up late talking, laughing and sharing our thoughts and fears. I visited with her last week and we prayed God would ease her pain and I thank HIM for answering our prayer. I will miss her here on Earth, but I am confident she went home to be with Our Savior. She always sang, “some day, some wonderful day I’m going home!” I’ll see her when I get there!
