Pat became such a sweet friend to me so many years ago while working together at Dr. Everett's office. Lots of fun and many adventures were shared. One might go long periods without actually seeing old friends, but they are always close to your heart. Fly high, Pat. And, give Ethlyne, Pete & Lucille a hug for me.
