    She was an amazing woman. As her loss will be felt and mourned on this earth, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels because she has come home.

    I remember Pat’s first day at Dept.. of Social Services and I knew right away she was the right one for the job. I never saw a frown on her face and loved her soft, sweet
    voice to all. Our prayers to her dear family now and will continue asking our Lord to bless them with comfort and peace. What a joy to have known that Pat was a Christian.
