    Words fail in response to the passing of a truly great person. Only God will know the true extent of that greatness, measured in part by the accomplishments from the countless lives that were saved through Pat’s inspiring leadership in the Pro Life Movement. May we all honor her memory by continuing to support this work to which she dedicated so much of her life and spirit.

    Jed, you and Pat had a great life together. I still remember the festive wedding some 62 years ago in New York. I believe I can say Fordham helped mature two great human beings, maybe three if you will allow me, your little brother, to be included. Pat was truly a great lady and you were fortunate to have met, married, and enjoyed a great life together. Keep smiling by keeping her in your thoughts in the coming years. Phil

    Aunt Pat was vibrant, intelligent, compassionate, and very generous. She had a great sense of humor and boundless energy, and she always made time for others. I truly appreciate the kindness she showed me and my family over the years. Uncle Jed, Greg, Chris, and families, I hope you are comforted in knowing that Pat touched so many lives in such a positive way. It was a privilege to call her Aunty. May God bless you all during this difficult time.
