1. Ah Pat, I feel like I’ve known you all my life, definitely long enough for you to become my second mammy. You were always so full of love and so much fun; you barely had a cross word for me even when I was being an eegit. I always felt so comfortable with you. I’m laughing now remembering how Uncomfortable you were in front of a camera. When i was a kid I’d ambush you around the house pretending to snap away, just letting the flash go off randomly, and you’d be running one way and then the other jumping and yelling ‘oh jesus!’. I once got up especially early to take a photograph of you and mum asleep on the living room floor after a big night out (but of course i wouldn’t share that here! don’t worry) But this is my favourite pic anyway, the last time I saw you. I just said, ‘none of your carry-on Pat, i just want a nice pic with you’ and you relented, eased into it. You even smiled. I treasure this pic. I treasure every memory I’ve got of you. So long Pat; you’ll always be in my heart. M

  2. Although I didn’t know Patsy personally. I felt I did by listening to all the funny stories Caroline shared with us at work.

    Dear Caroline, Sandra and Helena….may your beloved mother rest in peace.
