Pat was one of the most kind hearted women I have ever met. She was one of the very first people that just made me feel welcome at McDonald's. It was my first job as a young teenager. 20 years later, she still remembers me when we would go thru the Drive thru! Rest in Heaven sweet Pat! I'll never forget your smile!

What a kind and friendly lady. I would tease her about never going home. She was always so bright and chipper in the mornings, even if I was not. She will be greatly missed, no one could fill her shoes.
