Pat has left a legacy that will endure forever. I believe the elephants are grieving and are missing her. I was fortunate to meet Pat & Ed at the Howling Wolf Lodge as a seasonal park ranger at Standish-Hickey State Park. There were a lot of good times. We re-connected in 2000 when I served as Planning Director for Calaveras County and worked on permitting for ARK 2000. We shared memories of the Howling Wolf Lodge. My best wishes to Ed and I am know that he will continue with their efforts to protect the elephants and all other animals that need them.

Thank you Ed & Pat and I will always support your efforts. Kim Hansen

What a loss of someone who had such a big heart and rescued so many animals. I am really going to miss seeing Pat at the elephant sanctuary fundraisers. I read her book The lady and her Tiger and it really touched my heart what she had to go thru in the early days. She will always be an inspiration to me and I know she will be looking over the sanctuary always.

Knowing that 71 and all the other animals Pat shared her life with were there waiting for her when she crossed over, is the only thing that consoles my heart. My heartfelt sympathy to Ed and all the people who loved her. May this thought bring you solace too.
