  1. Yesterday I lost my best friend and 2nd sister of 40 plus years. I’m so heartbroken and lost. In our earlier days we were crazy and had the most fun together as we got older we calm down and got together often and talked about family and all of our most top secrets together. I will never find another Pat. I love you so much and know that you are not in anymore pain and you are with the love of your life Red. The angels gain another angel yesterday. I will never forget you Pat.

  2. I’m so heartbroken I lost my best friend and second sister yesterday. We’ve been friends for 40 plus years. I don’t know what to do I feel so lost back when we were younger we were crazy and had so much fun as we gotten older we settle down and started talking about our family and all the secret things that was on our minds. Pat I will never have a friend like you I know your not having no pain now and your happy to be back with the love of your life Red. I will alway think of you and love you.

  4. To the family if Pat. I worked with Pat way back in the day at the sewing plant. We became friends and had a lot of laughs together. Pat was fun and funny. She loved life and handled whatever came her way. I remember she was heartbrojen when Red passed. My thoughts are with you all.
