Sending so much love to you. Pat was an amazing woman, who was not only warm and inspiring to me, but was so supportive, interested and generous. I was always so in awe of her accomplishments and talents, and was particularly fond of anything she canned or knit. Heartbroken; she will be missed.

To Pat's Family, My most sincere sympathy to you as your mourn the loss of Pat. Although Pat and I did not work in the same office, we were both part of the Government of Alberta Human Resource community for a long time and our paths would cross on a regular basis. Pat was always warm, caring and sincere and her smile and laugh could light up a room. She touched the lives of many; the world has lost a wonderful person and far too soon. May she rest in peace and may your fond memories give you comfort in the days ahead.

Dear David and Family - I'm so sorry for your tremendous loss which is so painful. I know that the end has been expected for some time but that doesn't make it any easier. Pat put up such a valiant fight for such a long time to be there for you and now her suffering is over and she is in the better place she deserves. I know she will be joining my beloved wife, Marilyn, to renew their times together. I remember Pat's bubbly, sincere personality highlighted by her love of family and joy of life.

David and the family. I worked with Pat for a long time in Human Resources and we had so much fun, always had a laugh at something or other. She always had some positive comments to make regarding how your work was handled and what a great job you done! I used to watch her over lunch hours, on the rare occasions when we actually got a lunch hour, knitting those absolutely beautiful baby shawls - such talent. Her sense of human compassion was always at the forefront. Her birthday was our excuse to get together for lunch and celebrate. She will be missed by all who knew her and my wish is that the family understand just how special a person she was to us all. God Bless you all.

Dear David and family, My heartfelt condolences to you. Pat was an amazing lady who made the world a much better place. She always took the high road in her dealings with everyone, ensuring that they felt respected and cherished. Her warmth, kindness and wonderful sense of humour was always on display regardless of the situation. May you find comfort in knowing how important you were to her. She often shared her joy in the achievements and regular day to day interactions with each of you. Please know that you remain in the thoughts and prayers of those that were fortunate enough to know Pat. Betty

David, I am saddened to read of Pat's passing. Although we have lost touch over the years, the images of Pat's smiling face and kind words are immediately present. My thoughts go back particularly to many good moments we all shared when our kids were young. May you be blessed by many good memories, and may the grief of her loss be lessened by the love that surrounds you.
