To Don and Children, As I read over the many beautiful memories described by visitors to the sight I thought about how much love and appreciation there was for Pat, my long-time neighbor while living in Stow. But among my memories were the many cups of coffee at each of the neighboring homes, the many agreements during our discussions(and the many disagreements), but always the looking forward to the next afternoon where we could "hash over life" again. God Bless You and the Family, Sandy (Cholak) Wallick

Mrs. Saltis was my kindergarten teacher years ago...and I remember her as being such a loving person as well as a teacher who knew how to make learning fun (especially with the Teddy Bear Picnic!) Years later, she even sent me a note telling me she enjoyed my performance in the high school musical's pit orchestra...and I was amazed that she remembered me and took the time to be so thoughtful. It is partly because of her and other teachers I had at Highland that I was inspired to go into teaching myself.
I pray that God will comfort and bless her family and friends.

Dear Don and Family:
Everyone we've loved is a gift to be treasured, a loss to be mourned, and a part of our hearts forever. Pat was an encouragement to others through all the tough times with this ugly disease. She was always adamant that I get the CA125 test each year. Her spirit will live on through all the lives she has touched. We had such wonderful times on Grandma Zigler's farm. Don and I will miss her at the family gatherings, especially our "cousins' breakfasts" at Buehler's in Wadsworth. May the love of family and friends surround you at this time.

Our lives were so magically touched by the wonderful Pat Saltis. Our daughter, Emmie, had Pat as her kindergarten teacher and we have been in touch all these years. We will miss her sparkling eyes and contagious laughter. Love and Prayers go out to the family at this difficult time. Pat will be sorely missed by all who knew her.

Our hearts ache for the family and dear friends of Pat. Even while we are so grateful for her life, her spirit and her touch on our lives as she taught 2 of our 4, and certainly knew them all because of her work and friendship with Marianne.. Family and Friends: May God Grant you courage and strength.

Pat will always live in our memories. She and Mrs. Hannum were the best pair of kindergarten teachers kids could ever hope to have. We always knew school would be fun, educational, and a safe place for our children. They don't make 'em like that any more. We were so happy during our short visit to Ohio that we got to visit with Pat last October in Swenson's parking lot while we devoured our Swenson burgers.

Thank you Don for taking such good care of our good friend, Pat. We know how much love and devotion there was between you. Our love and sympathies are with you and your family.

Pat was the sort of teacher that made school less intimidating for kindergarteners. They got used to school being fun and interesting without realizing that they were learning. Rare was the teacher that measured up to her.
Later as I got to know her as a person and councilwoman, I appreciated her fiesty resolve, dedication to do what's best and her level of integrity. No one can say she didn't give her all in living her rich life, and in fighting the disease that took her too early. She is a woman much appreciated and long remembered. Bless the Saltis family and all those who knew her, for she was a blessing to us all.

Dear Saltis Family:

Our deepest sympathies in the loss of Pat. She was both of my children's kindergarten teacher at Highland. She was a wonderful teacher and a very caring and devoted person. My children had a very positive experience in her classroom, which set the tone for the school life they had at Highland. She will never be forgotten. I pray the Lord will wrap His arms around you and give you comfort and strength.

...And the mermaids remained close together.....laughing, dancing, and singing beautiful songs that only mermaids can remember. For many years this was the way it was and the happiness and the treasure of time spent together was not lost on any of them. But then the bravest, most vibrant mermaid of all fell ill. The others vowed that they would never leave her side. And so they journeyed together as far as the road would go. Finally, she knew that she had to venture on alone. So she sang one more mermaid song with them, gave them her love, and went on ahead of them to light the way. Then came a time unlike any they had known. They felt great sorrow but at the same time, great peace----strange emotions only known to those who love deeply, and they shed a tear for the loss of the one so true and strong. They know that there will be many more tears. But the mermaids will dance and laugh again, and in every mermaid song that they sing, they will forever whisper your name......
We love you, dear friend.....We will miss your laughter.....but you will always be in our hearts......The Mermaids----Marianne, Ginny, Les, Martha, Dana, and Mary

Pat was so full of life and a pleasure to be with. She touched our children when they attended Fishcreek by always remembering their names and saying something kind to them. We are sorry for your loss but we know that Pat is with God, keeping Him in stitches with her sense of humor. Our prayers are with you.
