  6. Melissa and Ann, I was just notified of your Mom’s passing. I am devastated. I feel like I’ve lost my own parent. I can’t begin to count the number of years I spent in your home between kindergarten & Sr. year! Always enjoying your mother’s wonderfully cheerful, quietly supportive company and beloved conversation. She was an incredible woman, both undeniably sweet & deeply strong. She raised two amazing, brilliant daughters that I love more than anyone in the world. Ann- my heart is right with you now. Love, hugs & kisses to all the family. I hope to see you all soon. Melissa- I’ll be calling you shortly. But you should both know that my thoughts and love-filled prayers are with you both. Of all people I have ever known in my life, your mother was the most deserving of peaceful & heavenly grace. All my love, Pat. I will miss you dearly.

    Please accept my deepest sympathy in the passing of your mother. I just received word about it and feel a loss too. Pat came into my life at a time where I needed a friend. She came first as my landlord and I believe God had a hand in that. She was friendly, respectful and caring. She loved seeing Cole whenever he was around and came to love the furry addition Brady when he came to live with me. When I moved back to PA, she was one of the misses in my life. It was always great to visit with her with a cup of tea when I was in CT visiting my daughter and grandson. Brady would try to run to the backdoor when we would take a walk past the house. Rest in God’s loving arms, Pat.
