Dearest Family,

Trish and I had some great times together. She did her best to be a good sister, a good daughter, and a good mom, and a good wife. We were blessed having her here with us these last 49 yrs. She is now in a safer place, and will always know how much she is with us in our hearts.

All my love,

I worked with Pat for several years at Va Port Authority. I will always remember her sweet smile and the beautiful decorations she created for our Christmas Parties and other special occasions. Her cakes were absolutely delicious.

My deepest sympathies to all, with the loss of Patricia.

We were first cousins, and regretfully had not stayed in touch over the years.

I last saw Patricia when she married Dean. She was so beautiful and her face glowed with happiness.

I know she will be missed by all who loved her, but remember she will always be with you in your heart. She has gotten her wings now and her face is still glowing with happiness.

You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

Patricia is my aunt.

She was 13 when I was born and was more like an older sister than an aunt when I was a kid. She always took tme to play with me when I was at my grandparents house, which was often back then.

She played piano beautifully and had a smile that would light up a room.

I love and will miss her.

Patricia was a big sister to me when I was growing up. When she was 10 years old I was born, Patricia would take care of me when I was a baby. Throughout the years she took care of me and my brother Frank. I remember when she met Dean, she was very happy. Dean would come over to Grandma’s house and we would wrestle. There are so many wonderful memories of Patricia that I could tell you, one day we can all share these memories in another place.

To My Little Cousin Dean and Family,

I’m so sorry to have heard of Patricia’s passing. I can think of no greater loss than that of a parent, your greatest supporter, or your partner in life. I’m saddened she left this world at such an early age though I’m confident she now exists without suffering and pain. Please know my thoughts are with you and I feel your loss. Though we rarely are in contact, please know you all are important to me. Finally, be in touch if there is anything I can do or simply to reconnect. My heartfelt condolences at this very difficult time. Love, Your Cousin, Pat

Uncle Dean and Family,

Words can not express my deepest sympothy for your lost. What I remember of Patricia, she was a beautiful woman with thick black hair and a glowing personality. I always thought that my “Uncle Dean” deserved someone as wonderful as him and he got it! I still remember how cool he was with his motorcycle and hot rod cars. When I met Patricia, I knew she was something special. She was a caring and loving mother and truely loved my Uncle Dean. And I am sure that no one will ever forget her good cooking. I wish I could have been able to keep close contact over the past years and it breaks my heart I have missed out on sharing memories with my family. I want to assure you all that mom, Cindy, Crystal and I will always be there for you, in your mourning. Mom always told me whenever I feel weak, ask the Lord in my prayers to, “please give me the strength to make me strong, and he will answer my prayers”. Guess what, I am thirty two right now and it really works! Love, Shawn Ennis
