"Dear Sweet Auntie Pat, I wish I had the chance to see you again but it was not to be. You were always a good friend to my mother, Gwen Riopelle Perrin, and a sweet auntie to us children. And Yes, I will always remember you telling me there was a boogieman under my bed and I should not look under it. LOL May the Good Lord welcome you Home with loving arms open wide and a smiling face. Please give Brian, Stan, and my dad a hug for me. I will miss you so very much and pray we will see one day. Deborah L. Perrin"
"It is a well known fact in my family, that Pat has been a wonderful, stay in touch friend, for many years. We were traveling on Military assignments, but I could count on notes and cards. She will be missed. I loved her like a sister and we met in 1954. My husband grew up down the street and knew her parents and Pat well. He even tried to crash her 16th birthday party. I didn't know him them. I remember her wedding and her mom and dad and know that they are all together again. God bless the family."
