    I met Pattie 4 years ago. Pattie has been a very strong inspiration in my life. I would call her every few days just to make her laugh. She always thought I was an odd Canadian. I truely enjoyed all her words of wisdom and kindest advise. I will miss her so much. It was a shock to hear the news of her passing. She is at God’s side now and I am sure that she will be blessed with His love. I wish I would have had the chance to Thank her for all moments of honest and true friendship that she showed me. I will miss her, but I know that she will be in my heard for as long as I am on this earth. To Pattie’s Family; Please know that she loved everyone so deeply as she often shared with me how important everyone was to her. Your love for her will keep her memory live and well with us forever. My deepest sympathy and condolences to all.
