    Patty’s memory will always bring a smile to my face and a tear to my eyes. She was like a sister to me and I loved her dearly. We were together at Topsail Beach for 30 years or more, walking hundreds of miles on the beach- laughing and talking each step of the way! We will be together again.

Her intelligence, work ethic and ability to find joy in any situation was an inspiration and great learning experience for me and everyone in our office. We love you Patty.
