Dear Anne and Chuck,
Your Mom was a beautiful soul and I always enjoyed talking with her. When she spoke of you and your families I could tell how much she loved all of you. She will be missed. You are in thoughts and prayers. May God’s grace carry you through this difficult time. Love, Jean
We were so saddened to hear of Pat’s passing when you called us. We will always remember the memories of Pat at class reunions and also times in Florida. May God ease your pain and help you and your family through this time. Please accept our sincere sympathies for your loss.
To the Doucet family,
I am very sorry for your loss. Pat left her mark with me when I came to Holdingford 30 years ago. She had a kind and gentle soul that was always spreading happiness. Pat and your family have been in my thoghts many times and you are in my prayers. May memories comfort you as God welcomes an angel.
Condolences to Roger on the loss of his wife, the Doucet family on the loss of their mother/grand mother, and the Breth family on the loss of their sister.

Thoughts and prayers are with you during this time. Words seem inadequate during this time. I ask that God provide for your spoken and unpoken needs.
Aunt Pat was a remarkable woman with a kind and gentle soul. I have many memories of her loving and caring ways from the cakes she baked for the family get togethers to the care packages she made for me while at college (including the home canned pickles).
Love and Hugs
