    It’s not often that someone leaves a hole in your heart but that’s the case with Pat. The hood will never be the same again. I know I speak for many but she will be deeply missed around Hintonburg.

      If you knew Pat, even for a short time your world has space that will never be filled.
      If you never got to know her, your world was already missing a person whose impact on everyone was completely opposite to her tiny stature.
      My deepest condolences to all the family and friends that she touched in her life.
      Rest easy Madame Mayor. You’ll nevet be forgotten.

    “Oh, and it’s a hollow feeling…”
    This heart breaking loss will take a very long time to accept. She brought laughter, inspiration and comfort to so many with her warm and generous heart. My deepest sympathies to Pat’s family and friends.

    Please accept our most sincere condolences for what I’m sure is such a painful loss. Pat became such a precious part of our lives it’s difficult to explain how much she’ll be missed. She had such an uncommon gift for recognizing exactly what people needed and jumping in whole heartedly to provide it. Support, words of encouragement, a kind ear, and sometimes a hard truth. There was an authenticity in getting a hug from Pat that felt like she was holding your face in both hands and squeezing your very soul.

    It was with deep regrets that I heard about the passing of Pat. My heart goes out to Kevin and Carla, Stephanie, Hannah and Tallulah. She was a wonderful woman and a great all around person. The world is a less interesting place without her. P.S. I don’t have anyone’s contact information.

    Deepest sympathy to all of Pat’s loved ones. I was lucky to meet Pat during the time that her grandson was at Connaught. She always entered the school with a beaming smile, offering support for the students and ready to jump in with a helping hand. We had some great chats about the wonderful community and her beloved Jeremy. xo
