I went to school with Pat and was a neighbor to the family around 1960. Although I haven't seen Pat or Pam since our high school years I remember our younger days well and fondly. My sincere condolences to Jay, Bill, and Pam on the loss their sister. May their faith console them during this time.

Pat and her entire family and friends were like my family. There are surprising similarities in our families. My sister Annette, who was murdered by a drunken driver, was at the time of her death a want-a-be-certified nurses aide. Now they are together helping those that need help.
also they both loved animals, Annette especially loved dogs. Collee was her favorite. I know they are in a better place and enjoying the company of Collee, Don and Larue, Edith and Olney, Uncle Edwin, and all their other friends and relatives. All our love and kisses and prayers, Roy and Augie Kendall, Visalia, California.
