Condolence & Memory Journal

This is a very big and sad loss the crew of the golden girls was such a huge part of our lives growing up I remember them having a party for a new rug in the sun room they celebrated everything just to spend the day or evening together I remember trips to placeslike Fewnk Davis Resort and the stories my mom would tell me after their weekends away like ice skating with Arlene or tonoggining or short sheeting someone's bed she never laughed so hard like she did remembering these stories ! Seeing her today saying oodbye to her dear friend and just carrying on her own conversation like they were the only ones in the room was really sad for me I so feel your pain of this loss and even tho we are not close now you will forever be a big part of my life and family I love all of you and hope that the memories you hold will help heal the loss you have endured ! Rest in Peace beautiful kind and lovng lady my mom and I will always always remember you with a big smile and song in our hearts!

So very happy that some 40 yrs ago, 2 families became neighbors and grew up together. Eventually, 2 married and joined us together forever. I am blessed to be a part of that and all the good times that have come with it. I will always remember Nana Pat as one of the nicest people one could ever know. Rest in peace Patricia, knowing that you are very loved and will be truly missed. God bless the entire Ryan family, for my heart feels your loss. Prayers to all.
