When I saw this post I was very surprised. The picture of Jack and Pat together brought back memories of the '50s and '60s. They were a wonderful couple. My deepest sympathy to Pat's family.

Pat brought so much joy to the residents at Humber Heights. Everyone would sing and smile when she played song requests on the piano. My Mom (Helen) and I really enjoyed her company. May the wonderful memories of your Mom bring you comfort.
