Pat was a dear friend of my family The Gonzalez’s, we where co-workers at Carolyn’s Notary and neighbors, Pat made a huge inpact in my heart, I personally saw her as the mother that I lacked for years. With great advise, great stories of her children, and always an ear when I needed to vent. She helped me get thru my fathers death earlier this year her words made my pain a little easier to deal with. A great woman,mother,friend will be dearly missed, I know the lord has a special place for her,I will miss you Pat and I will forever love you.

To Pat’s family and especially Chris & Michelle,
I was so sorry to read about Pat’s death in the newspaper. She was a special lady. Although I didn’t see her after we moved to Lancaster in 2000, in years gone by we often saw each other in Lititz and always stopped to chat. In the 1970’s she was my Avon lady; that’s how I met her. She was going thru some rough times in her life and I was a mom raising little children. We had some great conversations! She will be missed and I am truly sorry for your loss. May God give you peace and comfort.
