Drinking a cup of coffee this very cold day, & thinking of all the coffee we’ve shared.

Oh, Pat. Such a caring soul. She was so loving, never let anyone want for anything. John and I were friends and when I came over she always took such good care of my son and me and made us feel infinitely important in the world, as well as her life. When she and I would go walking on the bike paths and she gave such great motherly advice. I'm a better person for knowing her. My deepest condolences to the family.

Pat was among a group of us who started Birthright in Muscatine. She was a caring, generous person who loved kids. When I went back to teaching, we couldn't take sick days for our kids so Pat offered to watch them. Prayers for Pat and her family.
