Pat and I have been friends since we bought this house in 2003. One of my first and best memories of her is her inviting us over for pizza and the day we arrived to move into our house. She had a houseful of friends there already yet she did not hesitate to invite us over for dinner. She also introduced us to our Parish, San Martin de Porres, which we love. She was a devout Catholic all her life so I know she is seated at the right hand of our Lord and Saviour. She will be missed. Sharon & Willy Sykes, neighbours
