To Bell and Jennifer, I didn\'t know my dear friend had gone home until I read a message from Alanna that she just found out I am so sorry I was not there for you. My last conversation with Pat was in April and she told me she was on oxygen. We told one another that we loved each other and she said she was going to lay down. My condolences to both of you and the rest of the family. I will truly miss my friend. Just know she is not suffering any longer, she is taking a long needed rest.
