    My love, heart❤️ & prayers go out to you Cindy & Family. I will always have wonderful memories of the sweet lady I met years ago who had a wonderful, caring, devoted sweet daughter. It was a pleasure meeting her, & seeing her when I visited. I know Heaven has gained another Angel!

  • I can hear Pat laughing in her delightful way while saying, don’t worry just be happy. What a good friend she has been for me in her lifetime. We are now dancing together in spirit as I feel her strong, adamant care for love and compassion, her practical empathy for all, unconditionally. Her faithful practice of Alanon through the years taught me that acceptance, boundaries and limits must be applied on an individual relationship level. Pat’s lifelong devotion to her church, an example of consistent knowing in spirit of life’s purpose and meaning. How wonderful to have a friend where there is no beating around the bush, who says it like it is with unabashed sincerity and well meaning intent. I miss our chats together in the kitchen, my sitting at the table while she fixed up sharings of delicious leftover meals! Her love of music and dancing lifts my spirit whenever I think of her. How she enjoyed her “girly” clothes and feminine colors! Pat included me in her family. My pup loved her more than anyone else as she was the only person ever allowed to give him table scraps! There was never a person before, and there has never been a person since who has given me the feeling of being part of a family unit as Pat did. She gave the family cabin for me to use as a home and inclusion in a family burial plot if there was one to be created on the property… not only for myself but also for my pup Boner who she loved as much as an animal lover can love. Pat gave to the world my friend, her daughter Cindy who has embodied consistent faith and action in what is the truth of spirit. Pat, is it any wonder Cindy was able to have the unwavering desire, courage and strength to care for you through your final years of need and support with all that it entailed? Cindy is everything in sprit that you have sought to nurture while alive here on earth and now even more… as a result of your love. Rest in peace my dear friend.
