    Mary Pat and I worked together at Nebraska Medicine many years ago, what a great nurse with an awesome spirit. My deepest condolences to her entire family.

    To Melanie and the Roh family, I am deeply sorry your family is experiencing the pain of a loss like this.
    I have very fond memories of Mary Pat when I would visit the Roh’s home in high school and college. Mary Pat was an amazing woman and mother. She was such a warm, positive, and welcoming person. I enjoyed hearing her funny stories while listening to Neil Diamond in the background. Mary Pat has blessed so many people with her kindness and joyful spirit. I pray that you will find comfort in your memories of her and know that her spirit will live on in all of you. Keeping you in my warmest thoughts as you navigate through this difficult time.
