Here are some special memories shared by family and friends.
Pat was my only cousin (first) and we grew up near each other in Baltimore, MD. I'll admit I sometimes felt like the "kid brother" when she came around. My christening photo shows Pat peaking around from behind her parents (my godparents). Later we could sometimes share memories of that period as we both eventually did leave MD. Through the years we managed to stay in touch and visit each other. In particular, we recall the fun we had at George and Pat's wedding with all the family gathered. Fortunately, we stayed connected even though she and George were in north NJ and we were in central PA. Pat will be greatly missed and our condolences to George plus George Jr and family. With love Chuck and Sue.
