  • Pat was my oldest and dearest friend. We first met 75 years ago when we both lived on Brunner Street and stayed special to one another all these years. We played together, made dandelion bracelets together, had matching bathing suits and Easter corsages, called one another at midnight when dial phones were first used and so many other cherished memories that I will keep close to my heart as long as I live. I pray for her to have eternal peace now. I was so blessed to have her as my friend.
