Pat was such a kind-hearted woman who always had a contagious laugh and smile. She was a great person for jokes and always treated me like a daughter. She was a caring mom and just an overall wonderful person who people enjoyed being around.
Thoughts and prayers to Augie, Faron, Rowdy, Carla and their families.
