Pat, we said our final goodbye six years ago today. It didn't seem real then, it doesn't seem real now. I guess, when you love someone it never does. Sometimes when I think of you, I think I'll just give her a call, sometimes when I think of you my heart hurts, I wish we could have just one more day to talk and laugh and get together with ALL our dogs, you, Mike and me, the way we used to. I love you, I miss you. So, I'll just say so long for now, I will see you again.

Pat, you are missed by so many. Fortunately I got to be in on some of the laughs that you shared. I, like Connie, remember the parking lot at Furr's. I think we would be there from lunch to dinner just telling stories and making memories. You were one of a kind.

Happy 83rd Birthday Pat.... Luv ya

I don't know why the first thing that always comes to mind when I think about Mom is the parking lot of Furr's. Because the dogs were inside and she didn't want to keep the van sitting idly running for hours, she would go out and drive around in circles in the parking lot. When some guy asked her why she was driving in circles, she told him. He told her she couldn't do that, she just said, "Well, I'm doin it". Gee, the laughs and tears we've shared.

I will never forget you Pat. You and Mike helped make this "Elvis World" a lot of fun for many of us. Love you always, Judy

Pat, thinking of you today and all the great memories we made for our love of Elvis. Wish we could all go back and have a few more great Elvis years together to celebrate. You will always be in my thoughts and in my heart. Love you sande xoxoxo

Gone one year today and still missed just as much as ever. Today I am thinking of the years we had together in Memphis during Elvis week and it's putting a smile on my face. Yes I am sad for the loss of Pat that will always be there, but I am also happy for getting to know her and sharing special times with her. she will always have a place in my heart.

I can't believe a year has passed. But that's the way it goes. I am sorry I let so much time pass since last seeing you Pat, and now it's too late. When my time comes, and I get to heaven, give me a call and say "It's only me". Love you still and miss you bunches.

I enjoyed Pat's company, whether we were out at a restaurant, at the cemetary, out with the band or at home. She alway's treated me as a daughter.With Pat you never knew what crazy thing she would do next;she knew how to cut loose and enjoy the moment. I can close my eyes and see her sitting on the couch on 63rd st like it was yesterday. So many people will carry her their hearts forever.

Pat was one of the dearest ladies I have ever met. She was so funny too. We shared lots of laughter and stories that I will never forget. She and Mike took good care of me and protected me when I left Graceland which has given them a forever spot in my heart. Love Pat and Mike loads". Patsy Andersen

When I think of Pat, a smile immediately comes to my face. No one in this world could make me laugh like Pat. When she told a story, she would act it out until you peed your pants from laughter. My family was so blessed to have known her. She was the "Little Colonel" to me during the Johnny Spence years...and yes, he loved her as a mom, too.

So many stories, I could write a book! I remember her laughter, remember when she sang "Shanty" . And who forget the "rolling across the floor?" She was a very generous person. Opened her house to you if you needed it. Miss her terribly.
