I'm so very sorry to hear of Dick's passing. Thinking of him reminded of all of the fun times I had with your family and growing up at Hen and Sue's house. It was always exciting when handsome Dick was around. I hope the whole gang is having fun at a clambake in some little grove in the country in heaven.

Pat was my best friend ALL the way from kindergarden to high school graduation. I was in her wedding to Lyle. She was always available to talk and support me thru medical school. She was a voracious reader and was always suggesting books for me to read!My favorite memories are of her showing mernthe "farm" and its animals, going to the Saturday matinees at the Roxy, playing tennis with her at RHS, and (unfortunately) wrecking my Volvo when we were on our way to work one morning!rnPlease know that I will miss her e-mails and comments on my family letter. I close with this saying: "Some people come into our lives, leave footprints on our hearts and we are never the same" Thanks Pats, Tish or Pat

May you all feel God's loving arms around you , His comfort, and peace. I was blessed to have Pat in my life since kindergarten at Levering School. What fun years of friendship.. all the way through Roxborough High. A beautiful human being and a caring classmate. Although I ended up moving to Michigan, we still kept in touch through emails and class events. I was blessed to have her in my life as a friend for so many years.
