It breaks my heart to hear about Pat. She was one of the most amazing people I've ever met. Visiting PAWS/ARK will always be some of my most treasured memories. I will never forget what she and everyone at PAWS/ARK have done for all animals, but especially the elephants. Words can't express enough when losing someone like Pat, her light just shown so brightly. Thank you Pat, Ed and everyone at PAWS/ARK! Pat, we will miss you dearly!

I am so sorry for your loss. Soon there will be a time when death is no more. (Revalation 21:4).

We always enjoyed visiting her sanctuary and supporting the animals. Pat's legacy will live on.. deepest sympathy to everyone at PAWS.

Oh, Pat...We met at a Hollywood party, somewhere around 1970. There were a fair number of big names swirling around - and then there was this redhaired person in a gorgeous green dress, holding what I recognized as a coyote cub in her arms. I've always been fascinated by coyotes, and I promptly started over to talk to her. Before I reached her, the coyote wriggled and peed down the front of that beautiful dress. Pat never turned a hair, and I loved her from that moment. She had to leave early that night, because she was working on a future episode of "Lassie" that would center on a deer and a coyote who were best friends, so Pat was already raising them that way, for a show almost a year away. If it wasn't fun for the animals themselves, there was no way Pat would do it. There will be deep and massive grieving among your beloved elephants, dear Pat, and among those tigers who rubbed against you like housecats. You really were Dr. Dolittle.
