Pat was a phenomenal knitter who was always willing to assist others. She graced me with many hours of family tales, listening ears, beautiful smiles, and love while sitting around the table at the Yarn Angel. My prayers to the family and friends as you cherish all your wonderful memories of Momma Pat.
