    My heartfelt sympathy to all of you on the loss of Patty. I have nothing but fond memories of her from the time she was a tiny toddler right up into her 60’s. I will miss the phone calls I had with her and the many discussions we had. She was a truly good person and I’m certain she is in the arms of the angels. God Bless.

    Pat always had great insight into recovery issues. I enjoyed our conversations and will miss her a lot. Her legacy lives on in me in the form of the lessons she taught me about dealing with my daughter. I thank God for her path crossing mine.
