    Joe and Family, I am so very sorry to hear of Pat's passing. She was one of the sweetest people I've known. We spent wonderful hours struggling with bridge, supporting local organizations and sharing life. I'm saddened by her death but oh so happy to have known her. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Oh, my, Joe, Pat's presence will be sorely missed. What fun Al and I had "trying" to learn to shag. You and Pat were the perfect shagging couple! My love to you, Peggy

    Mrs. Harden was my 6th-grade teacher at Tileston School. I remember her as a kind, nurturing lady who encouraged the best of every student. She made quite an impact on me as a child. I have remembered her fondly and with appreciation. Please accept my sincere condolences.
