    When Pat came to N.C.C at Norfolk she immediately won our hearts with her professionalism, sense of humor and willingness to do what ever needed to be done. Then Mike, you stole her heart with your doe-c-doe and her smile lit up the room. We counted her a dear friend and work colleague. She is gone too soon. Best wishes to you, Mike, and alll of her family. May the Lord be your Comforter.
    Dick and Marie Brown (former N.C.C. Academic Dean)

    What a beautiful service for Pat. Yes, I did want to get up and dance when you played her cueing a Cha Cha. She will be greatly missed. I am glad I can watch the service remotely.
