    My heart is saddened to see this. I loved Pat. She was a bright spot in my day whenever I would run into her. Loving thoughts and prayers to Terry and Kevin and the rest of the family.

    She was a great lady. I remember a Halloween costume party Brian planned when he was the social Chairman of Lambda Chapter in Kirksville. It was a pretty large gathering. Pat and Terry came up and surprised Brian at the party. It was a real surprise too… They were in costume head to toe and nobody could see who they were. Brian went up to them to find out who the ‘uninvited guests’ were. What a great surprise! A very special Mom.
