  1. Fellow Rotarian and Friend

    Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss. We will keep you and your family in our thoughts and prayers and hope that the love of your many friends and family will help bring you some measure of peace.
    I am so sorry that I am unable to attend the memorial service and visitation as I am in Alabama visiting friends here.

  2. Deepest sympathies

    We are so sorry to learn of Pat’s passing. She was always a light that brightened her presence. And that smile, words can’t adequately describe its warmth and love. May you find comfort in knowing that she’s in a better place and at rest from her struggles. Thinking of you with love as you move forward without her.
