To Bill, Sandy, Gayle, and Karen, I send along my sincerest condolences. Pat was truly one of a kind and I am honored to have gotten to know her. Her dry wit and infectious laugh always had me smiling day in and day out.
One of my fondest memories of Pat happened on one of my first days of work at the Town & Country Store. I was just walking in the door for a 2:30pm - 7pm shift after school and the store was jam-packed with kids buying sodas and penny candy. The line was at least 10 deep. Pat saw me walk in and immediately stopped what she was doing, mid-transaction mind you, and walked right out of the store. On her way out she turned to me and murmured, "All yours kid…I gotta go take a walk". <3 Rest in peace.
