Pat was my sisters foster mother , which lasted a lifetime for Michelle. I do believe she was more of a mother then her own mom was to Michelle. We need more strong women who care and provide the love and quidance when our own family can not . She was a mother and mentor to many and she brought unconditional love to her own children as well as many who entered her home and her heart . Pat was a gift from God . May she rest in peace and celebrate in heaven with her new wings.

I first met Pat years ago when she was fostering. My son lived with her for a time when I was not able to be mom. She had faith in me and went above and beyond the rules to make sure I could see my boy. Even when he was returned to me she became a friend and has remained so throughout the years. I never met a woman with so much love and wisdom. I am so fortunate to have her as a friend. Even though we didn’t see each other for a long time the friendship was there. I will be eternally be grateful for her and I will miss her. My son also was saddened by her passing.

Pat… you were a staple in my life when I was young. We were next door neighbors, JJ (your son) was my first bestie ever, you were a bridesmaid at my Mom’s wedding. So many memories. I will always remember the love, the laughter and the LIVING that was there & the friendship that was established; well over 50 years ago. Love you Patty… Mom sends her love as well. 💜💜💜
