Memories Timeline

  1. I have not seen Patrice in many years, but I still have vivid memories of a shy smile and a sweet disposition. I feel very lucky to have known her, and have always looked back fondly on the times she laughed at this high school geek’s bad jokes. Sometimes it is not the people we know the best who leave the most lasting impression. That is true of my experience with Patrice. I will continue to pray for Brock and for all those who will most Patrice most.

  2. Miss Patrice was a wonderful person and amazing teacher to her students at Montessori School. She touched so many lives and enriched them. She will be sadly missed. My heart goes out to her family during this difficult time.

  3. My kids were fortunate enough to have been cared for by Miss Patrice at Montessori. Just a sweetheart who gave so much love to so many. She was a gift to those who had the good fortune of knowing her. A truly good and beautiful woman, we’ll miss her very much.

  4. My daughter had Ms. Patrice in school last year. She was a beautiful spirit, inside and out. My heart aches for her family and friends. Our children are better off in this world having known her.

  5. My daughter Paige absolutely loved Ms. Patrice. She was so warm and loving. She even came over for “playdates” with Paige. We will miss her so much.

  6. I first met Patrice in 1990 when we both worked at LAX airport with me being from London. We became firm friends with her showing me the sites of her town of LA, & me teaching her some strange English sayings & eccentricities. We shared so much laughter at work and outside & kept in touch over the years “over the pond” as she would say. I last saw Patrice & Brock when Mike, my hubby & I visited LA in 2002, and I was pregnant with Amber who is now 9 years.
    Patrices last words to me recently were ” Can’t wait to tell Amber our stories one day xo” ……… and now I cannot believe she will never have that same honour, good fortune & pleasure of meeting such a wonderful person. Sending my heartfelt sympathies to Brock, her family and friends xx

  7. Ms. Patrice was so very kind and sweet with our son Sean. She really knew how to smile and make you smile and her warmth and wonderful spirit really let us know that Sean was in great hands at Montessori. Our thoughts and prayers are with you Brock and the Esposito family. Tom, Kathleen and Sean Mortimer and Kris Kumar (Nanu)(Sean’s grandfather)

  8. Ms. Patrice was Daniel’s teacher at Montessori when we first moved to LA. He loved her so much. I will always remember her kind smile, sweet disposition and calm demeanor with the children. Daniel loved being her helper. We send our prayers to her husband and family. She will always be remembered. God bless you all.

  9. Brock, Joan and family, you are all in our thoughts and prayers. I just had a delightful day with Patrice on Dec. 4 at lunch. She looked beautiful and was all smiles. I’m thinking of you every day.

  10. I just learned about Patrice at the one year anniversary of her passing and I was so very sad to hear of it. I attended high school with both her and Brock and I always remember Patrice as such a kind and sweet person…always smiling and beautiful inside and out. I will be keeping her, Brock and the entire family and those close to her in my prayers. May the memories of her bring peace and comfort to all…
