I remember Pat so well from West Sub days and our subsequent reunions in MI. She could always get us all around Chicago on a bus line! Pat was always a practical helper with good common sense and love for the Lord. Carl, I remember you so well and your engagement while we were still in school. I'm so sorry for your loss and for the fact that your grandchildren will not have the blessing of more years of her life. We will be together again in heaven--what reunions to look forward to!!
