Scott SmithI am struck numb with the news of Pat's passing. We were such good friends through high school and I am sure she faced this last challenge with the same grace, courage and dignity she was known for even then. It is so comforting to see that the intervening years had no effect on those mesmerizing eyes nor her enchanting smile. A new void has opened in this world as I offer my sincere condolences to Pat's family.
Andy and Maureen HunterOur thoughts and prayers are with the whole family!
Jessica McClary (Herman)Kristen, Scott and Gus - Thoughts are with you as you grieve the loss of such a wonderful woman. I have so many good memories of Pat from the shooting stars days and beyond. She had a great smile and laugh. Sending all my love - jess
Diane McCollAs always, courageous to the end, battling everything she ever did with a vengeance. Pat will be missed by every person she touched, in her loving caring way, with her laughing eyes and contagious smile. We've shared many wonderful memories on many occasions over the years, we will cherish them, always. Our deepest sympathy and prayers to all of Pat's family. God speed Pat.
Anonymous We can shed tears that this wonderful woman has gone, or we can smile because She lived. We can close our eyes and pray for Her to come back, or we can open our eyes and see the love that She has left behind. Our hearts can be empty because we cannot see Her, or we can show to others the love she gave. We can turn our back on tomorrow and live for yesterday, or we can be happy for tomorrow because of so many yesterdays. You can embrace memories of Her departing, or you can do what She would want: Wipe your eyes, Love each other, Enjoy everyday, Be genuine, and continue on. Now our Sun has left us, and Pat has become a star above us in the sky. We will miss you, but never forget you. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family through this difficult time.
Lynne Brown (Molloy)My first encounter with Pat was competing with her in baseball when she was a student at St Patrick’s School and I was attending St Pius X. She always caught the ball. We often had lunch together in high school at Sir Adam Beck and later she joined me in Woodstock at the School of Nursing. I have many good thoughts of those times and I am saddened by her passing.

Maria and Tony D'OriaGus,Kristen and Scott and family, to say we were stunned to hear of this sad news today would be an understatement. Although we have not seen each other for many years, our soccer time together with the London Shooting Stars were years full of wonderful memories watching our girls grow before our eyes and excel to heights we could not have imagined. The group of parents we had were what made it so wonderful and all of Pat's hard work did not go unnoticed. We are so tremendously sorry for you loss and can only wish that God will give you all strength to endure the days ahead. Pat was a wonderful lady and taken too soon. Bless you all and lots of hugs and love are sent your way from us all. Tony, Maria, Maria Rosa and Nick D'Oria
Mike and Betty HermanGus, Kristen and Scott. There are a lot of great memories from our soccer days. I got to work with Pat closely over those years. We went through a lot together as teammates always do. I learned a lot from her and admired her professionalism and at the same time showing the ability to have a good time and laugh. I’m feel fortunate we were able to visit while she was still able to be aware and share some memories and laughs. Those memories for us are just a blip in time compared to all of your family memories. Those memories will help you get past the pain. She was a great lady. Unfortunately we won’t be able to make it tomorrow but know you are all in out thoughts.
Wade BoyeDear Gus and Family. I offer my sincere condolances to you. All though I met Pat only a handful of times over many years. I could always remember and recognize her, if I spotted her out somewhere, because of her kind smiling eyes. She always approached with a warm friendly greeting. It is said that "the eyes are the window to the soul". May her kind smiling soul be with you always. Thinking of you. Sincerely, Wade (Alex's friend)

Caroline Palmer I met Pat when I started my career at St Joe's. She was so welcoming. She helped me so much. I remember her wonderful sense of humour and beautiful smile. My deepest condolences to you. May she rest in peace.
Barb RiseburyMy heart goes out to you, Chrisy and your family. I was very saddened to hear the news today. RIP Pat.
Ruth and Terry Oosterhuis Dear Gus, Kristin, and Scott, Words cannot express how sorry we were to hear of Pat's passing. We've known Pat since our high school years and then reconnected through soccer. Pat was a warm, vivacious and caring person. Our family will always hold wonderful memories of her in our hearts. So thankful that we had such a nice, spontaneous visit together last fall. Our thoughts and prayers are with you!
Colleen ArnoldTo Gus, Kristin and Scott. I was so very saddened to have just heard about the loss of Pat. I have always really enjoyed Pat's company as we connected through soccer and sports activities. She was so understandably proud of her family. Her courage and spirit were inspiring as she faced this illness and I know she will leave a huge void. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Jessica NardoneI remember one evening sitting on Kristen's balcony downtown Toronto a few years ago, sipping cocktails together with her and Pat and watching the two of them chat and giggle away... just like any two girlfriends would. And I remember thinking in that moment how beautiful it was that a mother and daughter could really truly be best friends. I only ever knew Pat with a smile on her face and personality beaming out of her. Her light will certainly continue to shine in all of our hearts. Sending love to Kristen and family xox
