    I have a lot of good memories of Aunt Pat from when I was a little girl. Marcie and I spent a lot of time together and went to the same school for a while. Mom would drop me off at their house in the mornings before school and Aunt Pat would make plate size pancakes and we’d have iced tea. One of my favorite memories. She was always so loving, even a few months ago when I visited her in rehab. I can still hear her greeting now. Same Aunt Pat. She never changed! I’m sorry for your loss Marcie. I pray for comfort and peace. I know you will miss her dearly. Love you! Debbie

    When Pat worked at Liberty on 400 hall I worked as CNA. She was a always there if I needed help and I always helped her too. She was a great friend as well. We had fun times and serious times together. I am so thankful I knew her.

    May God give you:
    For every storm, a rainbow
    For every tear, a smile
    For every care, a promise
    And a blessing in each trial.
    For every problem life sends,
    A faithful friend to share,
    For every sigh, a sweet song,
    And an answer for each prayer.
    Hugs, Ann and Norm

    Pat is my sister-in-law. I say IS and not was because in my heart she will always be. She helped me through my teenage years in many ways. She stood up for me, gave me advice, and helped me through some rough times. (Or at least it SEEMED rough to me at the time) She and my brother allowed me to babysit my precious little niece, Marcie and entrusted her in my care. That was the best! I will always cherish the memories we all had together. Rest in peace, sweet Pat. We love you! Linda and Roy
