OMG Pat. I remember the 1st time I saw you when Jim brought you to our Brooklyn Christmas Eve celebration. Your beauty combined with your big, bold, beautiful personality will never be forgotten. More memories from our times together at my mother and father's place out in the Hamptons. My condolences especially to Jim and the entire family.

Before Pat became my step-sister 50 some odd years ago, she lived down the street from me. I was 3 years younger than her and into Teen Magazines and TV Stars. What I remember most about Pat back in the day was how much I thought she looked like “teen” Cher. They were both around the same age and beautiful, with the same sculpted features. I have continued to see that beauty over the past 50 years. Jim, my heartfelt sympathies go out to you, Denise, Jimmy, Jen, Missy, all the grandkids and great grandkids. You were her rock. Mom, Ree, Chris and Cameron, God grant you peace now that her suffering is over.
