Not sure what to say?

Carol and Pat 1982

My sympathies to Pat's family and special note to Jean Brown
Pat and I worked together in the Roseville Schools. I noticed the reference to Lunds. Pat provided the corned beef for my St. Patrick Day parties. Pat and I bonded over our Irish heritage which her humor and grace reflected quite well.
She related to me the story of her father's reaction to the creation of Martin Luther King Day. From that day on her father figured his kids should have St. Patrick's Day off as well.

I was saddened to hear about Patty's passing. Patty was my best childhood friend growing up in Palomino Hills. I often thought about her, even after our family moved to New York State and I lost touch with her. It was an absolute surprise and pleasure to have been able to connect with her again, about 4 years ago at my sister's retirement party. Her laugh, voice, walk, and so many childhood memories that we shared that night will not be forgotten. It was very hard to say good night, not...

I had the pleasure of working with Patty around 1979-1981 at Lunds on Lake St. She was someone that you could not forget. Her smile, enthusiasm and sense of humanity and humor were contagious! She was definitely a gift to be around! Her funeral was also a true gift and beautiful. It was easy to remember her through the words that were shared. God Bless to her family.

Steve and Cally,
It's been many years since I've seen you all, but very saddened to hear about your wife and mom. I remember her just as all of the other comments - happy, cheerful, and exhuberant. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Take Care.

Our sadness is tempered by so many years of wonderful memories. God love ya, Patty dear.

Cally you're in my heart and on my mind. You are your Mother's daughter and were a true friend to her. Memories can never be taken from you. Big hug to you.

Pat was such an amazing woman with so much love and incredible strength! Her smile and laughter were so contagous. I will miss her terribly and i will miss our talks. She always had funny stories about Steve and Cally and her love for them showed through.
Steve and Cally my deepest sympathies go out to you.

With deepest sympathies in the loss of such a wonderful person...

Dear Steve, Cally, and family,
We will miss our shining star across the street! Pat's exuberance was contagious; her talent at gardening, obvious; her adoration of animals, admirable. What an amazing woman! Please know we are here, always, for you.
