    I was only a very young child when I first met Pat in Montreal in the 50’s. My parents were Pat’s neighbours and Donna and I became fast friends,a friendship that has spanned all these years. Pat babysat me as a child while my parents both worked full time and how well I remember Pat’s TLC and many kindnesses to me as a child. In later years, I rejoiced with Pat at Donna and Tod’s wedding and that of Kyla and Ryan as well. Pat will be forever in my heart and in the cherished memories I hold of my childhood. I like to think of the two old friends, Pat and my mother, Annie Cameron, up to mischief again, “somewhere over the rainbow”. You were one of a kind, dear Pat, gone now but never ever to be forgotten. My husband Roger joins me in extending our very deepest sympathy to all Pat’s beautiful family. They are her lasting legacy.

    Pat’smile and laugh are indelibly etched on my life. I first met her at Stevenson Memorial when I was suddenly asked to take over the volunteer coordinator position. We shared a Caribbean connection and she would often laugh about my accent and tell me her stories of Montreal.
    Pat quickly rose to be president ofthe Auxiliary at SMH and we had many conversations and planning sessions in my office, during events and at parades. She delighted in being a volunteer and she and Bill drove for the Cancer Society as well. She loved bowling and ensured her schedule was cleared for that. She was so proud of her family and kept me abreast of who had come from out east and what grandchildren were doing. In the last few months, we spoke over the phone every couple of weeks and the last time she asked after my three year old grandson who chatted with her last year about birds. She laughed as she remembered him. Her laughter will ring in my heart.
    Thanks Pat for the fond memories. Be with Bill now in everlasting peace and joy and may your family be comforted with wonderful memories of you.

    I lived 2 doors down from Pat in Tottenham, I was newly emigrated from Wales and suffered from homesickness. Pat took me under her wing and showed me nothing but kindness. She was the first to invite us to dinner at her home and introduce us to our neighbours. I will remember her and Bill with such affection, Rest In Peace,you have earned your rest.xx
