Pat was a dear friend of mine at Denby but especially at Our Saviors. We did so many things together. I always admired her spunk! Hearing of her passing has stirred up memories of laughter and tears and the dramas of high school years. I have that same graduation photo among my treasures. I'm happy to know she had a life full of love. My condolences to her family and friends.
