Dear Jerry, Deb, Diane & Denise,

Our heartfelt condolences to all of you at this time of sorrow. We enjoyed
knowing your mother as a neighbor, and I worked with her at Millersville for awhile  and had so much fun at work because of her pleasant personality and willingness to help with anything! 

I’m sure you all have wonderful memories of happy times with Pat and I hope they will sustain you through these difficult days.

Celie (Shaeffer) Landis and mother Cecelia Shaeffer
