Post a Condolence

I worked with her years ago, at the Mobil station. She was a kind, and witty person, and a joy to be around. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family, and loved ones.

I bowled with pat at dodge lanes for a few years. She had such a great sense of humor. Loved her laugh. I am so sad to hear of her passing. My thoughts and prayers are with bill and barb who i knew very well and to the rest of her family.
