"This morning, I'm recalling the times I met Patti, how lovely she looked at Amanda's wedding, the dinner we shared with the family at the Summit House and the many stories Donna has told me about her mother.  Just remembering her love of her family, all those dogs & of course the little bird & horses.  Just picturing Donna relating the centipede story to her mom the next morning.  Thinking about the many trips she made in that small airplane.  Patti is missed by her family and those of us who only had the pleasure of meeting her a few times.  Hugs, Patti.....know you are at peace and in a wonderful place."

"Dear Nick,

Sorry Julie and I could not be there yesterday to attend Patty's "coronation" ceremony, but please know we were with you in spirit!

Thank you again for all the love you two poured out on Julie and me over the years as it meant a lot to us. Patty may be gone, but she is not forgotten and neither are you brother!


Jim & Julie"

"Eternal God
                 We praise You for the great company of all those
                        Who have finished their course in faith
                               And now rest from their labor.
                            We praise You for those dear to us
                       Whom we name in our hearts before You.
                           Especially we praise you for Patty
            Whom You have graciously received into Your presence.
                               To all of these,grant Your peace.
                           Let Your perpetual light shine upon them;
                  And help us so to believe where we have not seen,
                  That Your presence may lead us through our years,
                                  And bring us at last with them
                                      Into the joy of Your home
                     Not made with hands but eternal in the heavens;
                                  Through Jesus Christ our Lord.

"Nick,  So glad you made so many friends so fast in your new neighborhood including Sheila and me.  We are here for you and so are all the men in our Bible study.  Stand tall and when you need to lean on someone, we are here for you.
"Those how hope in the Lord will renew their strength.  They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.""

Please know we are thinking of you and praying for peace and comfort that only comes from Jesus!  Love you all!"

"Nick, you are correct, she left way too soon. But she left behind a loving husband, family and friends who were all touched by her sweetness, kindness and love. I'm sure our Father said, "Well done, good and faithful servant". Now she is rejoicing, laughing and dancing on street of gold! Praise God."

This tribute was added by Nick Howard on 18th November 2013

"I would pray that all would have the love, strength, kindness, gentleness, faithfulness and inspiration that Patty brought to me over 33 years. It is to soon for her to leave but she would urge us all to accept the blessings she brought us and be thankful she is at rest.
I love you so Patty"

"We had the pleasure of meeting Patty at Amanda's wedding.  She was a wonderful person and I would have liked to had the opportunity to really get to know her.  What I do know is that she had the most wonderful daughter in Donna, who is perhaps the kindest and one of the funniest people that I know.  Donna, your mother had to be proud of you for who you are.  Remember always the happy times"
