  • To Tricia, Alex, and the rest of the London/Mullen family,

    I am so very sorry for your loss. I had the pleasure of meeting Pat several times between events at Avon High, Academic Decathlon, and the APL, among others. Always warm, smiling, and kind, a trait she clearly passed on to her beloved family. An immense loss for you and the community she was so involved in. My thoughts are with you all.

  • To Tom and Tricia,
    My prayers are with each of you and your families. As part of your extended family from Putnam Street (even with a slight spelling difference of the last name), my heart goes out to each of you. Your mother upheld the true meaning of the word Saint. Her door was always open, her phone always answered, and her ears open to listening. I will miss seeing her at various gatherings, visiting her before Christmas, and seeing her at St. John’s church. The time she sat me down when my mother butchered my hair cut during my Junior high school years and she said not to worry as it will grow back and then had your father take me to the barber to get it cut correctly is a life long memory that only Putnam street people can understand about your mother.
    Paraphrasing and combing a few Irish prayers:
    The road to heaven has met up with your mother as the wind is now underneath her wings. As she is being lifted up to the heavens, though the sun is no longer in her face, the sun is now embedded in her soul to shine on each of you. Until we meet your mother again, may God hold her in the palm of his hand and keep a spot for us all.
    May God rest her soul and all of the souls of the departed from Putnam Street and through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
    John Mullin

  • Tricia:
    The loveliness of your mother is clearly embodied in you. She is woven into your heart with a weave too tight to unravel. May her love continue to surround you all the days of your life. You were both blessed. Be well and pass on my very deepest condolences to all who loved your dear Mumsy.

  • Dear Tom & Tricia,
    So sorry to hear of Pat’s passing. She was a sweet and loving person.. She was a mainstay in the neighborhood. love and prayers to you and your families.

  • Dear Tricia and Tommy,

    Your Mom was such a sweet woman, such a lady. I’ll never forget the time I fell off my bike on Putnam St., Friday the 13th, and broke my arm. My parents weren’t home, so she brought me in to lie down and wouldn’t let me go to sleep because she thought I had a concussion. She was always looking out for us and taking us in if needed. So many great times spent Christmas Eve, block parties, and playing dress up in your basement. So happy to have had her in our neighborhood! Sending you love and prayers during this time.

  • I am saddened to hear of Pat’s passing. I knew Pat from volunteering at St. John the Baptist Parish. We often served as altar servers at the 8:00 a.m. Mass during the week and the 4:00 p.m. Mass on Saturdays. Pat was a lovely woman. She was very kind and warmhearted. She will be truly missed. I’ll keep her and her family in my prayers.
