    Pat was a very kind caring soul. Her employees were more important to her than her company. She will be missed by many. Rest in peace Pat.

    Pat was my Mentor & 2nd Mother! Started my business career with her & John at Associated Couriers, Inc. I learned everything I am in business because of her. She was a kind and caring soul who treated everyone with respect and compassion in personal and business relationships. She will always have a huge part of my heart!

    Grandma… you are the best person I know. You were such a comfort. You always took time to listen and offer kind words. I know you’re still around us, still praying for all of us. Your strength, wisdom and beauty lives on in each one of us. I love you.
