All our condolences to our family as we say good-bye to our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend. My Aunty Pat was the epitomy of what a mother and grandmother should be. Her family was most important to her. She was always there for my mother when she needed her. She was there to accept us children into her home if we wanted to come visit my mom in florida. She loved life and had so many friends and was loved by all. She wanted to spare her family the pain of watching her fade, and we all prayed for that to happen and it did. She is going to be missed by so many as she was an angel on earth, and now has her wings. Good-bye Aunty Pat. in your famous words. Love ya!
