Condolences to your family. I worked with Pat, Corrie, and Joel many many years ago at Willowbrook. I always loved to work with Pat. She mothered me, always knowing when I was upset, or even when I was pregnant, before I even knew, as sometimes mothers do. She always had a passion for helping others, and it showed. She was a wonderful woman, full of love, and spunk. She will be missed. Although she is gone, remember she had wonderful faith, and is now in a much better place, no longer suffering, but now rejoicing in heaven.

I saw on Facebook that it was your birthday and went to your page to see if you had been on it recently. I had sent you messages to find out how you were doing and kept wondering when you were going to answer. Today I found out why you hadn't.

I miss you, friend. I will always remember that you had the first Barbie and the first Ken doll in the neighborhood and we played with them together. I'll always remember dressing up our dogs in dolls clothing. I'll remember the periwinkles that we scouted for in the river when I stayed overnight at your river house. And I'll remember the thoughtful discussions we had after we reconnected on Facebook after so many years of absence.

Save a place for me, my friend. I know I will see you again years from now.
