My deepest condolences to the family,

I'm sorry to hear a very sweet and dear person has transitioned. I worked with Pat at Forsyth County Child-Support for many years, she was always in a jovial mood and kept up laughing. Pat had a very sweet, kind and gentle way with everyone. Pat made no difference and showed no difference, she was a friend to everyone.
RIH, Rest easy, my friend -
