I remember Pat as a sweet and quiet girl, we were in high school together, and I remember that I decided to go to a dance after school, but didn't bring a change of clothes with me, Pat took me home with her and found a skirt and sweater from her closet and gave it to me to wear, I was so glad that I did see her at out 50th reunion. I spoke with her and her husband, it was so nice to see what a special woman she had become. I am so sorry she is gone, much too early. My condolences to her family.
