I attended a reunion for Lyman High last night...classes '72, '73 and '74. I asked about all of the Hitt clan as you were a part of my life for several years! I was heartbroken to have heard the news of Patty! My prayers are with each of you as I know the pain of loss and the years it takes to move forward! I know the hole that is left for a lifetime and trust God is helping each of you to still find some joy in your day to day lives! Time doesn't heal all wounds just allows you to figure out how to move forward! My love to each of you!
I just heard the horrible tragic news today. My heart is crushed as this seems so unfair. Ms. Patty taught both my kids J.P. and Isabella in computer. We all absolutely loved her. I would see her every week with the most amazing smile. She was such a positive beautiful person. My kids still talk about her to this day even though they graduated the preschool. I know she is in heaven, she was already an angel here on earth! Ms. Patty, I feel honored to have known you and have had you in my life while I did, you will be missed
Today I heard of the very sad news about Ms. Patty. My granddaughter Isabella was her student, she loved her and was excited to share many things about Miss Patty. She was a very special person, with a kind word and a big smile. She is with our Lord and in the memories and hearts she touched.
I am speechless having just learned of Patty's passing. God has welcomed her home, yet the void remains here for You, her family. Peace and Comfort are my words to share with you. May all of the great memories of your wonderful, talented and cheerful Daughter and Sister sustain you. An LHS friend, Jon
Just learned about Patti's passing tonight, and I am so very sorry. I knew her well in high school. She was a beautiful person! She was a wonderful friend to all, and everyone loved her. Patti always had a smile on her face and was a pure joy to know. I'm so very sorry we lost her far too early. My prayers and sympathy to her family and all that knew and loved her. You will always be remembered, Patti, and loved. ~ a friend from LHS Class of ‘74
Our family will greatly miss Patti, as she was like my own sister, in many ways, and an aunt to my children, who loved her. My peace is in knowing she is absolutely with the Lord, and keeping my 1st husband, Randy company ,along with sharing her smile with the kids from Newtown,Conn.My prayers are with her family and all who loved her. I will miss you, Pats!
You had such a tender spirit and kind heart. My heart was truly broken today upon hearing this sad news.Your beautiful smile and kind words will forever be in my heart. Heaven truly gained a precious angel.
so sad to hear about Patty :( my son was in her Tuesday computer class. Just found out the sad news this afternoon. She was such a sweet, caring person. She will be missed
Ms. Patty taught my 4 year old daugther Alicja most of what she knows about computers. She was so warm, cheerful and always helping. We will miss our Wednesday conversations at First Friends. This is so heart breaking. May God give her Peace and Comfort. Our deepest condolences to the Family.
Dear Ms. Patty,
Although you were my children's computer teacher, you were also my good friend that I would love to share my Smileboxes with. Will miss you and your comments so very much. With tears & a very heavy heart, until we meet again....GOD BLESS MY FRIEND!!!
I just heard about this this morning. My heart aches, she always had a smile on her face and so gentle and patient. My condolences to the family. It is such a tragedy.
My daughter, Doniyah, had been one of Ms. Patti's SuperKidz Computer students for the passed year. All the children just loved Ms. Patti and she loved each and every one of them back. She was phenomenal with the children and was a sincerely kind and very understanding person. I am so glad that I and my daughter had a chance to know her and that Ms. Patti was there to partner with me in her development, both academically and emotionally. Ms. Patti will be sorely missed. RIP Ms. Patti.
My son, Nathan, was in "Miss Patty's" computer class. He absolutely adored her and really looked forward to seeing her every Wednesday. I know she loved the kids as much as they loved her. She was a kind, wonderful person and inspiring teacher who touched the lives of many. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.

Ms. Patty, you will be sorely missed by all who knew you. Your contagious smile and positive energy always made our day. The children you taught in our center were very excited each time you came to their classroom for computer class. Your constant support for our academy was very encouraging and you became more than a colleague, but a welcome friend.
Dear Patty, we will miss your cheerful smile and zest for life. The time and energy you gave my daughter during the Glitzy Girl summer camp will forever be in our hearts. Until we meet again.
