    I worked with Pat and shared friendship for my short time here in Wilmington 10 yrs. She was a good woman and loved and cared for family, and her clients were also her family. May the Angels meet you and take you to Butch in Heaven. Love and my prayers to all her family as they mourn 'Pat' Mom, Grandma Bell!
