Dearest family: Pat was one of my heroes. She always marveled when I told her that, but so very true. I know no one who has been such an example in a time of personal decline so as to lift others so high and as far.

Pat was such a wonderful nurse and person. It was my honor to have known such a great person. She will truly be missed.

My heart breaks for Owen. Pat lived to make his life easier. She was such a grand person and such a good nurse. Having a learning impaired grandson myself, Pat and I were very close and talked often about our grand grandsons. She is where we all long to be now, no more pain or strife. I pray that Owen can make the transition to life without his best pal and staunchest defender.
