I am so very sorry to hear of Pat’s passing. I worked with Pat for years at Perrigo, had lots of laughs, good food, and so much fun with all of us that worked close with her. I wish you prayers for Comfort and Peace Mark, and to the girls. She loved you all and enjoyed those grandbabies. Remember all the good memories. Peace to all of you.

I am deeply saddened to hear of the loss of your mother. Your mother and I have been friends for 40 years. She was a maid of honor at my first marriage. She provided a loving, structured daycare for my son when he was just weeks old, and throughout grade school. I have several great memories of your mom. She will be missed dearly.

I am so saddened to learn of Pat’s passing, so shocking. She was such a good person with such a great sense of humor, She could start and maintain a campfire better than anyone I have ever seen, and when she cooked atop the campfire grill plate, the food was worth waiting for. Pat was a founding member of “Girl’s Weekend” in Allegan with my other dear friends from Perrigo – it will not be the same without her. I hope she finds peace. My condolences to Mark, Erin, Stacey, and the rest of her family and friends who are grieving. Goodbye friend.
