It has been quite a while since I have been able to see my Aunty Pat, but my memories of the many trips to visit her and my Uncle Vin in Elizabeth SA are amongst the happiest memories I have. Whenever I enjoy a lemon cheesecake I always recall those that she made and shared with us. A truly sweet and beautiful soul, I know she will be terribly missed by all those that were close to her. My thoughts and prayers today are of her and for her immediate family who will of course be saddened by this loss. I hope all those that can attend her funeral today can come together to commiserate and celebrate the wonderful life she lived. Aunty Pat, you are very much loved and will be very much missed.

Thinking of Great Aunty Pat’s family as you all farewell a lovely lady. I will always have fond memories of staying with Pat and Vin when Grandma Connie took me on the train as a young girl to visit. We played a lot of scrabble while we shared a tin of Quality Street and I’m told Pat would have been enjoying a nip of brandy! Thanks for the memory Great Aunty Pat, it’s one I’ve treasured and will continue to do so. Love to all.

To Pat & Vin's family, special thoughts and deepest sympathy at this time with you all. I met many of you at aunty Nel's 90'th birthday. Its times like this that you remember the good days spent with everyone. My family remember Pat & Vin coming to NZ, from memory some time in the 1980's. That was special. Thank you Judy for letting us know of Pat's passing and please pass our thoughts and prayers to the Fox's in Canberra. Love to you always, Winifred & family.
