Wonderful pictures, these show the real Pat I will remember, full of the joy of life despite life not always being so joyful for her. She always looked on the positive side of everything.

Re: Pat Gresham

Got the news this morning so very sad. First met Pat about 15 years ago and visited her about eight or ten times over the next ten years.
