    Dear Harold, Thomas, David, Andrew, John, Mary Ellen, and Family ,
    As the Director of Alumni Relations Emeritus, I offer you the sympathy and prayers of the Saint Viator/Sacred Heart of Mary High School community as you mourn the death of your “beloved wife,” beloved mother,” and “devoted grandmother.” It is clear from the obituary that Patricia was a woman whose faith in God were evident in the way she loved her family and served others. Our hearts go out to all of you as you move through your journey of grief, unable to be comforted by the physical gathering of family and friends.
    We pray for you as you continue to share the stories, laugh and cry, and find ways to celebrate Patricia and the love you shared.
    May  memories of Patricia and the love you shared comfort you!
    May the knowledge Patricia lives on in your goodness give you peace and hope!
