I remember Pat, Murray and Patsy from my days in Holstein. She was always welcoming when Des and I were hanging out and going about our adventures. Always a smile and a wave when she saw us walking to school. As a young girl I thought she was very beautiful and loved her infectious smile. She will be missed by her loving family.

I knew Aunt Pat and Uncle Murray all my life. They were like two peas in a pod; always together, holding hands, a wonderful couple. I remember when Uncle Murray would tell a story, always with a cigarette in hand. I would watch his hand as there would be about two inches of ash hanging off the end. So many good memories of an incredible couple.
