  • Patricia Migas Jim and family I have no words to express how I feel but I do know you each will handle your grief individually. I want you all to know that when I met Dick I had no idea it would lead to reconnecting with Pat. For that I am grateful. Since Pat's passing I have been remembering so much of our early school years we shared and hoping she had as much fun as I did. Dick and I did do a memory donation in her name as suggested. If there is a prayer card I would appreciate one I have a few that are from special friends who have passed too soon. Your memories and Celebrations as a family will be difficult but Pat would want them to be happy.
