    May God bless you all! Pat was a great woman. I met her over 30 years ago, and instantly like her and her style! She had the greatest ruby vintage jewelry that she wore sometimes, and she looked so beautiful! She has suffered so much, and I know that she is not suffering anymore. I will miss her! So glad that I had the opportunity to know her.

  4. I loved you sweet smile and beautiful soul and the love you had for your dogs! I am glad we got a special last time together even though at the time I didn’t know it.

  5. Pat’s sensitivity allowed her to possess a unique vulnerability, amidst which she was easily wounded. And yet…. it allowed her to experience life at the edges, where others seldom venture, but where the thin air knows vibrant riches.

    My sincerest condolences to all of Pat’s family and host of friends. She was a dearest friend and one of the most remarkable women I’ve been honored to know. Of her wit, intelligence, and strength, a characteristic I found most inspiring was Pat’s true kindness and forgiving spirit. She loved unconditionally and with devotion few people ever witness. Pat blessed my life in so many ways. I will miss her terribly but know I will see her again someday to enjoy music, poetry, great conversation, and her engaging laugh.

  12. Thanks so much to everyone who posted here or came to Pat’s service . She would have been thrilled at the outpouring of love to her family. We appreciate so much all of your prayers and concern for us, the beautiful flowers and gifts to Morris safe house. We will miss her terribly, but you have all eased our burden with your kindness, support and presence. We love you all. Helena Crabtree

  13. Dear Family,
    I wish to express my Deepest Sympathy in the loss of your Loved One.
    The pain, the grief, and the feelings of helplessness can seem unbearable. The Bible gives comfort, it promises that there will be a time when death no longer exists. “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”-Revelation 21:4. I hope this will bring comfort to your Family. If you would like to know more about the Bible and what promises it holds, Please visit:, at no cost or obligation.
    With Deepest Sympathy, Kristy

    A dear friend has been lost in Pat’s passing. I just found out a week ago a friend of my youth is gone from this earth. However, she is still alive in my memories as she has been through the years to us that knew her. As a fellow dog lover, we shared many fond moments in our youth with her troop of Beagles. She will be missed but shall sleep until the resurrection. May God’s light shine brightly in her soul when she awakes from her restful sleep to enjoy being whole again, healthy and in her prime of life forever.
