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.
