    She was a dear friend from church. She ran the Homeless Food Run for years in the community, before Mission Solano really got started. She also did a Christmas Toy Drive each year for many of the children that were helped every week from the food runs. She was the epitome of the widow who had nothing to give financially, but gave everything she could of herself. She was a constant writer of Letters To The Editor, which were always strongly worded, influenced by her New York upbringing. She was always there with a hug and a smile, and got excited over the tiniest things. I could go on. But, mostly, she had a love for Jesus that absolutely changed her life! I'm so grateful that God allowed me to witness that first hand. I love and miss you, Pat! I can't wait for your hug when I get to heaven!

    Pat's love helped save my life. I will miss her dearly. The love of Jesus changed her life so drastically. The love she showed me was so wonderful, I thank God for it.

    We "spoke" occasionally through email but sadly, never met. What nice lady. RIP ma'am! Condolences to family and friends.

    I met Pat years ago while we were giving food and supplies to the homeless and almost homeless. It was a precursor to Mission Solano. I lost touch with her over the years until a mutual friend of ours got married and n 2009. I've been in touch with her ever since. Although we shared many of the same opinions and convictions, we had an ongoing debate. She was a good Servant of the Lord and a fantasto Patriot, in that order. She was an amazing woman who was able to smile though she would be hurting. Always with the quick wit and positive attitude. I will miss your many emails, my friend. You were truly a gift from God and I am a better person having had you in my life.
