Words cannot express the sorrow I feel for the world
Without Patty. She was one of the nicest and kindest people I have ever met. It was never about Patty-she was always more concerned about others than herself. And her smile and laugh would light up a room. Please know you are all in my prayers and I will miss her

Doc, Christy and Michael and family,
This is sad and shocking news for which words seem so useless. I have only happy memories of being in Patty's company while she was never without her pretty smile. For you I pray that all the many more happy memories that you have to cherish will comfort each of you going forward in this time of great loss.
