You always had a kind smile and a realest to life and could talk smack to the inmates when you had to. You always had an aura of professionalism which inmates and staff respected. We will all see ya on the other side one day. You will be missed.....

So sorry to hear of Pat's passing. She was one of my favorite cousins to visit when we came back to Kentucky. We didn't spend enough time with each other, or all my other Kentucky kin. Please relay my condolences to my Aunt Imogene, and family.
Always had a smile for me! Rest now in the Creator’s arms. 🌹♥️
I was honored to work with Pat twice during tours at Lexington. Dedicated and creative, she will be missed. RIP kind and gentle soul.
