    Our hearts go out to Teresa, Ed, Linda and families on the loss of our dear friend Pat. Her spirit and fun loving personality will live on long past her passing. Her bustling take charge, larger than life, get things done personality will be missed by many who loved her. She was truly an angel here on earth helping others whenever they needed her. She is now walking the warm beaches of heaven holding hands with her beloved son Greg. She will remain in our hearts forever as the spunky Irish women and we will always remember her especially on her beloved St Patrick’s Day. Rest in peace our dear friend as you are so deserving of it. Warm hugs to all who grieve with us.
