I met Pat many years ago while doing promotions in stores. She and her husband were the greatest couple. I always looked forward to seeing them. She was beautiful, gracious, and kind. Much sympathy to you and your family.

Pat was a dear dear neighbor and a lovely lady. Also, occasionally I would run into her at Aultman West for exercises. She will certainly be missed.
