  • To Pat’s dear family, please accept my deepest sympathy for your loss. Pat was a mentor, colleague and beyond that a very kind friend. In the days ahead I hope you are able to find some small amount of peace comfort and solace, surrounded by the love and support of friends and family.

  • As many have already said, Pat was a wonderful partner and invaluable source of information. We worked together on some key projects, and interacted on various teams over my last 15 years with Fresenius. She was rightfully proud of her nursing career yet always learning new things. An ultimate professional, a gift to nursing, a kind friend always ready to help another, Pat’s presence is already missed. Though I am shocked and saddened by this news, the depth of pain for her family cannot compare. Let friends and family support you and lift your spirits so that encircled by love, understanding and patience you will know peace. “May her memory always be for a blessing.”

  • I have known Pat for 25 years as a friend and Colleague. Pat dedicated her life to the care and equitable treatment of the Kidney disease patient and to the education of Nephrology nurses. She was a long-time board member of the Southern New England Chapter of the American Nephrology Nurses Association working steadily to provide educational opportunities for all Kidney Disease Nurses and patients.

    Pat had a very dry sense of humor that provided us with endless laughs throughout the years. She was a joy to be around. I will always remember her humor.

    Life is like a thread, it weaves itself through life and memory remaining a part of everything it touched. You are a thread in out tapestry of Life Pat and we will never forget you. We will do our best to honor your memory and to carry your educational mission forward. Rest In Peace Dear Friend.
