    "So very sorry to learn of Pati's passing. Pati was always good for a big smile and a laugh. We would see one another at sporting events where we were cheering on the grandkids. We spoke of our joy with our families and how fortunate we were to have our families so close that we were able to encourage and enjoy them. I know she will be missed terribly. "
