Many great memories of growing up in Kisco Park with Patsy. We had many long talks in her bedroom, rode bikes together, swam in the brook. Reading of Patsy's fascinating life I feel honored to have been her friend when we were kids.. To Dennis and all her kids and grands, you were blessed to have had her.. Sorry for your loss. Prayers to you all..

Dennis and Family, Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. We have such beautiful memories of our time together in Naples, Italy. Dennis, you and Patsy welcomed us when we first arrived. You, Patsy, Don, Jacque, Tony, Mary became a new family away from our stateside families. Those time in Naples are forever engraved in our hearts. Patsy was such a calm, caring, talented woman. We are so privileged to have known her. Love to you all, Tom and Lori Titus

I met Patsy when I lived in Naples. Both of us are avid bird lovers, and just all around ANIMAL lovers! I admired her spunk, and the fact that she didn't follow the pack, she did things her way. We will all miss you Patsy.........
