  1. I met Pat when Michelle was in my First Grade class at Ceredo Elementary. She was the sweetest and most enthusiastic mother ever! A few years later I had the privilege of being Trish and Tim’s teacher. These three children were so loved by their parents! I will always remember Pat’s big smile and loving heart. Heaven has gained another angel.
