  • John and kids

    Pat and I worked a number of years together — through some great times, and through some budget cutbacks. Pat was a professional, always did her job extremely well, and with a sense of humor and grace.

    I missed seeing her fiery hair in later years, but then, it takes a red head to know a red head. We will all miss her.
