Donna and Kelley, I have so many fond memories of your mom. Growing up we had many family dinners at your house where the food and table settings were always fabulous. Your mom was always so generous. Sometimes she bought us clothes... just because. She gave me a shower before I got married, Your mom and dad took us on a trip to Long Beach - that was the first time I saw the Queen Mary and the first time I went on a helicopter ride! So many wonderful memories of her and our families all together. Praying for peace and comfort for you all... Love, Denise

Pat was a charismatic, loving and kind person that I had the privilege to work with and know. Pat and her family became like family to me during that time. She was very devoted to her family and friends. She and Kirby were my strength through some difficult times in my life. I am forever grateful to have know her. Rest in peace, Pat. Love Theresa
