I met Pat thru the American Legion Auxiliary. She was a great person and took things in stride. We spent many hours going to Aux. and 8 & 40 events. She was always game to go places if we were able to get her and her
wheelchair loaded in a vehicle. I will miss her.

Pat we met three and a half years ago as residents at the nursing home. You were a wonderful friend especially during difficult times. It was a joy to go to Mass with you. You made bingo and all the other activities a lot more fun. Iím glad your pain is over and youíre reunited with your husband, son and granddaughter. Enjoy heaven! Pray for us as we will you. Until we meet again, I love and miss you. It was my honor to call you friend.

Thoughts and prayers to the family. Pat was such a sweet, sweet aunt. I have so many fond memories growing up down the street from you all on Martin St. and also recently getting to visit with her in Harvard. My heart is breaking knowing she has passed away, but knowing she's no longer in pain and reunited with Uncle Al, Randy and her granddaughter, is comforting. Love and hugs to all of the family.
