  1. Dear Sister Pat—I will remember your amazing, tough yet gentle spirit forever. I always quote your consoling words to me when my dad passed “he lives in you since he created you”. Now my mom just passed—a week before you! so again I thank you for your healing words.
    The activist community will miss you forever. Godspeed to the Angels. Love you!!

  2. I want to extend condolences on the loss of Sister Pat. I met her and appreciated her good listening skills. She also extended a kindness to me and let my rabbits stay in the backyard of the convent for a short time. I appreciated her help as she had clearly heard the need and was willing to help any one in need. She was a beautiful spirit. One we need more like. She will be very much missed.
