Pat believed death "was a good time, entering the Kingdom of Heaven.  The only people hurt are the ones left behind.  Life is a circle, from happy times, family, sorrowful times, loving times.  Please do not mourn over me, be happy I am with my departed ones.  We will pray for you. I will do everything I can from above to help all of you.  I feel fantastic."
