Pat was a such a friendly and kind member in our Savannah Chapter. I had lost contact with her over the years and was so pleased to see her smiling face in her obituary and I enjoyed reading news of her family. It reminded me of her photograph in an album I have from February 12, 1969 at the Desoto Hilton. We had costumes made for the Ga. Day celebration that year and we attended the luncheon and met the governor. We certainly had great fun in our finery. On Pat’s right is Mahla Kent Lee and Joyce Davis on her left, me, Susie Gordon, Fayrene Wilson, Barbara Weatherly, Ann Wessles, ?,?. I think that now Pat has changed her address to a Heavenly one, I am the only one left to share this with you. I hope this brings a smile to your family. Pat was a treasure. Fondly, Lee Forbes
