he tragic event of September 11 has taken away a great friend. We have been friends for 25 years and although we did not see each other all the time, it was always good to know that at any time either one of us could pick up the phone and call each other and get together. Your memorial service was beautiful. Your brother Thomas did a great job and your mother looked so pretty. The day of your Memorial Service was one of the hardest things I have ever had to do in my life. Your friendship always meant a great deal to me. I know the holidays will be tough for everyone this year, but I will keep your family in my thoughts and prayers always. You are one of my only friends that ALWAYS remembered to send a birthday card so you know without a doubt I will be thinking of you every year on my birthday. Miss you.

Pat was a wonderful person, someone who was very courteous, thoughtful of others. It was a pleasure to know her.
