    Patty was unconditional love. She was not judgemental. She was kind, generous, artistic, and loved her children beyond reason. Patty lived in the moment and really enjoyed life. She was such a big part of my life – there always. I will miss her terribly and only hope that I will be inspired to have some of her wonderful qualities.

    I love you Patty – Terri

    I came to know Pat over the years as much more than Chris’s sister. She became a friend as well. I remember fondly the many times we spent together over the years when I shared in Chris’s get togethers with Pat. I will always remember my trips to Gloucester where she was such a welcoming hostess. God bless you and your family, Pat. Donna Trainor

    To my dear Toto family. I was greatly saddened by Pat’s passing. She was a kind and loving woman. I will always remember the way she embraced the Italian family that she came to know and love. She was a devoted mother and a great person. May God grant her peace everlasting. My deepest condolences to you all.

    Love, cousin Bernadette

    Dear Joe and Susan, I am so sorry to hear of Joe’s Mom’s illness and death. It’s so very hard to loose a parent, and especially so suddenly. I truly believe in life after death and an eternal, peaceful resting place. I’ve always felt that my own Mom and Dad are still present in spirit and that they share my happy moments. May you find comfort in your every day recollection of her and in your children who are a part of the generational link to her.
