Leslie, Harry and families,

Our thoughts and prayers are with you! She left the impression with us that in spite of everything she would just confront them and move on. As I said, she seemed like the energizer bunny. We appreciate all the care you’ve provided your mom to enable her to do her best. Your Love was captured in that one word Leslie used....Mommy.

Blessings,
Eddie and Lory

We are so sorry for your loss. We feel like it is our loss too. We have been Pat & Lesters neighbors for 34 years. We shared many laughs and stories throughout that time. I will miss seeing her and having our chats! May she RIP and now be united with Lester.

I loved Pat and have some wonderful memories of spending time with her, and her family. It's very sad to have all of those people pass on. I know that they are rejoicing at being together again.

My profound condolences to Pat’s loving family. Pat was my tournament partner and banquet buddy during our Saratoga Ladies Golf League outings. I’ll miss the wonderful conversations we had about her Alaskan adventures. What a great woman!
