My deepest sympathy to the Rogers and Cardwell Families,
Words cannot adequately express how much Ms. Pat meant to me as a friend, co-worker, and like a mother. I will always cherish the good times that she and I shared in the office and outside of the office. Ms. Pat will always hold a special place in my heart. May you continue to be at peace and Rest In Paradise.

To the Cardwell Family -- It was such a pleasure to have Pat as a friend and colleague. She had a listening ear and I will truly miss our conversations and laughter. And, although I could sometimes hear her physical pain, I know she will be able to rest in peace and continue with her extended retirement.
