    Loved your Mom – she was a great friend. We sure had some good times together, which I will always treasure. So fortunate to have met you all and thanks for sharing her with us. She’ll be watching out for us all from “up there”.

    I was a science teacher, then school counselor at Friendswood Jr. High while Pat was teaching Spanish there. She was a wonderful person and a dedicated teacher. She was always attuned to the needs of her students. I am so sorry to hear of her passing. I loved and respected her. The world is a more beautiful place because she was in it.
