Pat was such a big part of our lives and made my Dad so happy. They were so right for each other and so good to each other. Pat was never short on words and loved to talk about her grandchildren and great grandchildren; always making sure she had the special little gifts for each one. She loved to go fishing with Dad and even to the engine shows. Oh and how Pat use to love going to the Muny; we loved sharing those nights with her. She knew no strangers. Her extended family were her co-workers and customers from Hardees and was known as Grandma to many of them. Pat, you will truly be missed and the color purple will always belong to you. You have left us with some very fond memories we will never forget. We love you so much and we will miss you. Happy Mother’s Day in Heaven! Lesa and Tom

Dear Dawn and Frank,
Haven’t seen Pat for quite some time, used to see her on the boat all the time. We were in card club for umpteen years, until she married the second time. We were great friends of Pat and Gil when our kids were little in the 60’s. Pat was always a great friend. She had such a loving personality, always upbeat even when she had no reason to be upbeat. Bless her heart she is surely in heaven with all her loved ones.
Sorry I cannot be at the funeral.
