My heart is aching for Pat's family, both her natural and wedded families as well as the several communities to which she contributed, including the Class of '76. So sad to learn of her passing. My memories stretch back to the 70s when she was my classmate. Beautiful in so many ways. May you find sweet peace now, Pat.
