To the family of Patty, we send our prayers and to all that knew Patty which was all of Three Rivers - we will greatly miss her. Patty always had a smile on her face and was the best waitress I every have come in contact with. She knew everyone and treated us like we were her family members. We were sad to read this on line as we no longer live in Three Rivers. What a great loss for everyone. Judy (Gilchrist) Mohney
