Saddened to hear of Pat’s loss I extend my deepest sympathy to her children and your extended family. Pat and I were inseparable all through our eight years at St. Clare and a shared Year at Regina High School. Life separated us, but memories of my good friend are vivid and cherished. Oh how she could make me laugh! My love and my prayer follow her into the arms of our loving God. Peace to all who share her loss.
