Pat had a significant influence on our lives, as you know. She cared for me and loved my kids. We enjoyed many, many hours laughing, gossiping, cooking and drinking some very nice wines! Our family sends our condolences to all of your family. We loved her and will miss her.

Patti was a joy to be around during our days in High School. We were in the same sorority, and had some wonderful times together. What a wonderful tribute to her in the paper. My condolences to her family as I know she is will be sorely missed.
