Hello Kern Family! I am saddened to hear of your loss of Pat; the mother, wife, grandmother and mother-in-law and certainly the glue for all.

My heartfelt sorrow with the loss of Pat, as you continue on; those memories make you smile, laugh and love even more.

Like her obituary stated, she was employed a HLR for 37 years, I knew her that many years. Richard worked there too. You could always tell what kind of day it would be when you looked at her face, but in the end it all worked out. Since she retired and I retired, we just didn't get together. Well. I guess she is waiting for the rest of the clan to have a party.
My condolences to Richard and the children. It's a tough road to go down, but God will help you through it.
If I can't make it you know I will thinking of you.

Richard, so very sorry to hear of the passing of Pat. With this virus it has been a while but we used to have a nice conversation at the Trolley with you both. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Pat and the entire family. She was a very nice lady and sure had many things to deal with over the last several years. Maybe she now rest in peace and pain free as you gather all the happy memories of the happy days. Bless each and everyone.
