Pat lived life to it’s fullest and always knew how to get the job done. She said what needed to be said. Her most favourite place on earth was out on the farm with her dog.

Mom, you were my best friend no matter what, you were always there for me. But now you are gone, we find our selves empty inside and wondering. This is the time we will begin to heal.

A thousand prayers won’t bring you back,

I know because I’ve tried.

And neither will a million tears

I know because I’ve cried.

To me, you were someone special, my best friend.

What more is there to say?

Except to wish with all my heart,

that you were here today.

There is a corner of my heart that is set aside for you,

as long as life and memories last

I will always love and remember you.

The family wishes to thank Pat’s home support workers, Jenni, Faye and Mona for all their support.

There is no service to be held.

Mom, I Love you, You’re my best friend.
