      Please accept our sincere condolences on your family's loss... For the brief time Pat was at Fritzingertown, she made a great impression on everyone there, especially my Mom (Sharon). Pat's fun-loving way, knowledge of trivia & infectious smile were a gift for all those around her. Even when my husband and I would visit my parents at Fritzingertown,  Pat would always stop by the room to say hi. My mom considered Pat a friend & she is sorely missed.

      Deepest sympathy to the family.  Pat was a kind, compassionate and loving person who was always ready with a smile or a laugh.  I was blessed to call her a friend and coworker, and a great support to me.  Heaven will be a much brighter place now.  Rest in peace my friend.
