"My most sincere condolences to you Toni, Sally, Terry, everyone. It is truly an injustice that I was not able to be there however I know Pat is in a better place; she is finally at peace. She was so fortunate to have such amazing, resilient and committed family. I will forever cherish our conversations and the things I learned from Pat. Her heart was always in the right place, always concerned about the people around her and how they were treated. She always called a spade a spade and would advocate for anyone she felt needed it. Pat was so special to so many people and it was truly a privledge knowing her. She had a fierce conviction for the things she felt strongly about and I always loved that about her!! May she be at peace as well as the rest of the family. My heart goes out to you all. "
