I was sure sorry to learn of Pat's passing. She and I shared a lot of laughs over the years and I will always remember her fondly. My deepest sympathy to all of her family and friends.
I'm so sorry to hear of Patty leaving us. Many memories growing up and visiting when we were at Aunt Ann and Uncle Cecils'. Rest in peace dear Patty.
Cindy and I were so sorry to hear of Pat’s passing. I have a lot of wonderful memories of my Aunt Pat. She and my late Mom, Carlene (Wicevich) Slack were close while growing up in St. David. I imagine they have found each other in heaven. Our thoughts and prayers to her kids, Brooks and Stacey, and her siblings, Bill and Shirley. I will remember recent visits we had with Pat at her home in St. David, which at one time was the home of my grandparents. Carl (Sheik) and Allene Wicevich. Pat was so nice to let us tour the house that I spent so many precious times in. Thanks Pat. Rest in eternal peace. Say hello to Mom for me.
