I just found Pat's obit. I am so sorry for the great loss the family is feeling. I enjoyed talking and sharing with Pat thru the years. She was a special lady. She loved her family dearly, children and grandchildren. I pray the Lord wraps His loving arms around each one of the family and gives comfort and peace.
