Guest Book & Memories
May 29th, 2020
I only actually met Pat once in person at her granddaughter’s wedding. She was a fun loving person. I listened to all of the stories about her from Beth, and felt I knew her a bit. May she Rest In Peace, knowing her family will remember and carry on with so many of the traditions she taught them.

Many memories of Pat and Irv from 1950s and '60s, and thankful for Pat's great friendship with my mom after both became widows. She was a key figure in the Kaminsky side of my family. Pat's memory is for a blessing.

We’ve known and loved Pat for many years. She was always a smiling, loving person who never failed to make us feel loved and always made sure we knew we were.
We’ll miss her very much, and we’ll always have wonderful memories of her.
Much love, Deb and Dave
