We were so sorry to hear about Pat. Our condolences to all of her family. Pat was a wonderful, kind, thoughtful person. She took great care of her boss, Tom and everyone else at Viatech. We especially remember how she used to shrug when she laughed, and she was very supportive. We know how much she was loved by her family. Surely, a great loss, but her spirit lives on through all who knew her. We'll remember her sweet smile always.

We are so sorry for your loss. Pat was a wonderful person who could make anyone feel special and at ease. We have so many great memories of the old Digital days but more importantly the friendship outside of work that even all these years later we still feel in our hearts. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

To the Shong Family,

I was another one that worked with Pat at Digital. She was a hoot. Miss the fun times we had working together. She will be missed by all that knew her. I wish I had kept in contact over the years. She is now watching over all of you and smiling. Peace and love. Diane (aka Archie)
