Pat was a treasured friend and neighbor in Weymouth. She was like a Grandmother to my son Ted. We often talk about our afternoon visits sipping Nest-tea iced tea in her kitchen and chatting about our day. She would tell us about her kids and Grandkids and her face would light up. She adored you all. My heart is broken for you. She will always be in our thoughts and prayers.

With sympathy for Pat's family - I was sorry to learn of Pat's death today from one of her former Weymouth neighbors. Pat was a funny, kind and thoughtful neighbor of my mother, Mary Barter. We both enjoyed visiting with Pat. She had an infectious joie de vivre. My dad had been fond of her also. I have to take Mom to an already once postponed doctor's appointment Monday at 10:45 in Weymouth so we will not be able to be at the funeral. Pat will be in our thoughts and my Mom's prayers.
