It is with much sympathy that I write this. When my son, Scott, started kindergarten, Pat was there, introducing herself - introduced me to the PTA. I have considered her a good friend since then. I loved her sense of humor! Mark and Lisa are such good "kids," and Pat was so proud of them and her three grandchildren. She is gone from this life far too soon, but is at peace. She will be truly, truly missed. From Barb, Scott and the Andrews family.
