  1. I am so sorry to hear of Pat\’s passing she was a good lady. While is impossible to feel the family\’s grief be assured I share in you sorrow. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Gw

  2. I’ve been a long-time friend of Pat’s daughter, Kari (Karen Lynn Cullen), and had the pleasure of meeting and knowing about Pat. She was such an inspiration! Her zest for life is something that I admired about her. She traveled the world and saw things most of us only dream about because we don’t have the nerve to venture out. But Pat never let anything stop her from living life to the fullest. I thank Kari not only for being such a wonderful friend to me, but for giving me the opportunity to know her Mom. I feel fortunate to have known such a wonderful person. Pat, you will be missed but never forgotten.

  3. Dearest Kari,
    Of all Pat’s travels, may her journey to heaven be her most beautiful.
    With our love and sympathy for the loss of your beloved mother and friend,
    The Medina Family
    Ben, Merit and David
