Gary and Family,

From the moment I met Patty she treated me as if I were one of your Family! After I lost my own Mother 6 years ago she filled a void for me. I will always remember how good she was to me and Neil. We will never forget her!!!We love you all!

Gary,Terry, Scott and Mandy,

I know it has been hard to say goodbye to Patty. There is so much pain and struggle when we have to finally say goodbye. Patty Gail was so kind hearted and trusting. She walked to the beat of a different drummer for sure.. If there is life after death as who really knows, she is with her family. Debby

My deepest sympathy for Patty’s Family. I knew her from Eastern Va. Medical School. We shared many breaks together. Her laughter and smiles could get anyone through the day..Her free spirit lives on.
