Private Condolence

Please accept my deepest condolences to your family. I would like to offer encouragement to your family for the loss of your loved one. The Bible offers immense comfort and many wonderful promises from God foretelling an end to our enemy death. The scriptures at Isaiah 25:8 says, “He will swallow up death forever…”. Also at Revelation 21:4 it says, “And He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” Please read these verses in your Bible and feel free to find additional comforting scriptures at

Dear Thomas, Kelly, Tom Barbara and Bill,
Please accept my condolences. I have only fond memories of Cousin Patty and was in complete shock when I heard the news of her passing. Life is certainly too short. However; I am glad she got to spend her last days enjoying the ocean air and witnessing the birth of her grandson. My heart aches for you all. I pray God will give you an abundance of strength and I also pray He showers you with peace. I am honored to be related to such a wonderful lady.
Much love, sincerely your cousin, Jill

I met Pat 43 years ago when I started dating her brother, my husband Bill. I was and still am impressed with her kindness. She went out of her way to accept me into the family. She was so great with our boys and always treated them special. Billy and Adam loved Aunt Pat and Uncle Tom. She always had the best gifts (especially Star Wars)Through the years whenever we needed Pat's help she was there without question.. The business of life and my not making that extra effort prevented me from becoming closer to her which I regret very much. I am so sorry for your loss Tom, Kelly, and Tommy. Pat will be missed.

I first met Pat at her home during Kelly's bridal shower. I was touched by how kind she was. She had a house full of people and a million things to do, but she to the time to be sure I felt welcome. In subsequent meetings, I discovered her wonderful sense of humor and devotion to her family. She was a down-to-earth and very genuine person who will be greatly missed and always remembered.

Deepest Sympathy, Barbara Citerone

One of my favorite memories of Aunt Pat is something we still laugh about today . It was 1991 I was in 8th grade and we were down the shore spending the week together . Aunt Pat was driving and she almost ran over a beachgoer trying to cross the street and the only thing he had to protect himself was his beach chair which he held over his head . We laughed and laughed about that for years . Seems like a silly memory but we always had lots of laughs when we were with Aunt Pat . Sitting around the dining room table just telling stories and laughing. When I took my first trip outside of the US to Mexicao Aunt Pat couldn’t wait for me to bring my photos over from the trip to tell her all about . That was the type of Aunt she was always ready to listen laugh share a story . There is a hole in my heart now that she is gone . I know she is up in heaven watching over all of us .. love and miss you always Aunt Pat ❤️
