    I am heartbroken by this sad news. Mommom was such a wonderful, caring person. I will never forget the precious times we all had together, especially Thanksgiving/Christmas 2008 and the family vacation 2011. In her loving way, she always made me feel like I really belong to this wonderful family. She will be sadly missed, but she’s in a better place now.
    Praying and thinking for you, Jan

    My Aunt Pat was the most beautiful person. She was always smiling, her laugh could be heard whenever she was around and she loved her children and grandchildren dearly. I will truly miss her presence when I come home for a visit. She is now with God in his loving arms.

    My condolences go out to her entire family.

    I love you Aunt Pat.

I know how much she loved her family, and was so proud of all her children and grandchildren, they gave her so much joy. My deepest condolences go out to her entire family during this very difficult time.
