    What a sweet woman! She had such a kind and gentle soul! Pat was a fantastic ray of sunshine so many times in mine and my family’s lives! She will be deeply missed by so many! My 7 year old said a prayer for her everyday since he found out she was sick. Now he just asks God to tell her hello. That is the kind of woman Pat was and how much she affected everyone! much love to the family!

    I am so sorry for your loss. I only knew Pat from going through the drive-up at McDonald’s, but I loved her dearly. She was always so kind to everyone and always had something nice to say about everything. If I was having a bad day, she would always have me leaving with a smile and in a better mood. I wish I would have known her outside of her job, she was such a great lady. I will miss you dearly Pat, RIP. It just isn’t the same not seeing you at that window. You never had a bad thing to say about anything, you were the light of so many people. Keep that light shining down on all of us. LOVE always!!
