    Dear Tom, My sister, Judi, informed me of Pat's passing. I can still remember your wedding, having a duck dinner that you cooked for Kate and I, and your crazy stories about working for the IRS. Our prayers and thoughts are with you and your family. God Bless, Mac
  • Florence Aldrich-Bennett  - A Very Special Person
    Pat was a very special person. There are many wonderful things to remember about her. One thing that stands out to me is how much Pat cared about other people. Each time I called her when she was going through very difficult times she never complained and always asked how my family was instead of focusing on herself. Pat will be remembered and missed forever by all who knew and loved her. My thoughts and prayers go out to Tom and the family.
  • Barbara Albert Sturtevant  - Class of 66 Memories
    To Tom and his family, also the Dinsmore Family in the lost of Patty. She was a wonderful classmate (LHS Class of'66) and friend for over 50 + years. Enjoyed our amazing reunions, our social get togethers and holiday events with our classmates, and if we had not seen each other for a while, our conversations started as if we had just talked yesterday. She was a doll and will be sadly missed by all that knew her. May she rest in peace. Just want you to know my thoughts and my prayers are with you. My heartfelt condolences. With love and respect, Barbara Albert Sturtevant
  • George DeLuca  - Good to my mother ...
    My mother Teresa lived across the street from Pat and Tom. She always mentioned them with fondness. Pat kept an eye on her and we connected on a couple of occasions, one of which was a medical emergency. I'll always be thankful for Pat's thoughtfulness. My sincere condolences go out to Tom and the family.
