    Pat was simply a wonderful person. As a lifelong craftsman, musician and artist, I appreciated her pottery and art. We became friends when we first me and I will always remember her as a great person and friend.

    I am so glad and thankful that our informal and nontraditional book club enabled me to know Pat on a much deeper level than I had before and to experience in a personal way her intellectual acumen, delightful sense of humor, and straightforward and loving personality. In her understated way, Pat always dressed smartly with a taste in simple clothing and unique pieces of jewelry that reflected her chic, artistic nature. But her love of gardening and the earth and rivers were as basic and profound as her relationship with those of us who found in her a true and trusted friend. I shared her love of art, which somehow connected us on a deeper level, and I treasure the two pieces of pottery she made — one a simple blue plate with a terra cotta rim that could be wall-mounted — made just for me during the summer of her death. On the day that I picked it up at her and Lois’s home, Pat and I visited for an hour or so, giving me one more opportunity to know her better and appreciate who she was. I extend my deepest regards and affection to her wife, Lois, whose grief and emptiness I understand personally, along with the reassurance that time will assuage the pain and reinforce the joyous memories.

      Thank you, Shelley. She so enjoyed the times you all got together. I wish I could come to Bill’s gig on Friday! Pat would have loved it. Our esteemed local sax player is going to play blues solo for the service. My love to all of you.
