ADD A MEMORY

I have many treasured moments of this wonderful lady. Whenever Patricia's son Michael and myself would rehearse downstairs of her home, she would always say something kind when our practice sessions ended. “Pat”, would always say to me how much she loved hearing Michael and myself singing together and would often ask us if we could learn a certain song for her.

The most endearing quality of Patricia Thomas is that she was pure of heart. When I was very young, she would always ask me how I was and would offer wonderful words of wisdom when she knew I was feeling down. I also will never forget that Patricia's husband Phillip always referred to her as "My Bride."

Though we are all mourning this loss, I have an inner joy knowing that Phillip and his bride are once again joined together for all eternity. I will never forget you Pat for all the kindness you showed me when I needed it the most.

May God assuage the grief of all the Thomas family and loved one's during this most difficult time.

I have many happy memories with my Aunt Pat, but some of my favorites are just spending mornings chatting away over coffee whenever I visited her in New Port Richey. we loved reminiscing, playing Farkle, and especially going to Bingo together.
Pat showed me the ropes on my first visit to a Casino. I played the nickel machine and she said I would have beginner's luck; $1100 later, she was right!!
Aunt Pat was a fiesty little Irish aunt with a stiff upper lip and a strong wooden spoon that kept her boys in line when we were kids. always loving and welcoming, Aunt Pat was a friend as well as an aunt.
My Mom and Pat can once again have long talks together. Thank you for your love, friendship,ànd for the happy birthday phone calls over the years. As Uncle Phil would say.... thanks for being you Patsy!! .
