One of the memories that sticks out in my head were the times that Pat would have family get-togethers at his house. One in particular was a Christmas eve Party. She would be there making sure everyone was fed and happy. I remember her coming up to me to make sure that I had enough to eat. Although I had a full plate she insisted I try some of her home-made specialties...which I happily obliged. :) She was a warm and caring person who would make you feel good whenever she was around you. She is definitely a blessed addition to God's angels who are now even more lucky now they get to enjoy her food! My thoughts and prayers to her and her family. She will be sorely missed. ~Paul Xavier Moran
