It is with great sadness that I send you our love and sympathy for all of you at Pat's passing. What a beautiful woman she was. Her smile and energy will live with us always. We wish we had an opportunity to visit with her before her passing. She will always have a tender place in our hearts. Pat was our classmate in high school as well as a dear friend. Sending a hug to each of you she left behind.

We would like to express our deepest sympathy to the Mortensen family for the death of Patricia. We are sorry for your loss. While right now words fail to capture the pain of losing your dear loved one, we look forward to the time when words will fail to capture the joy of our Heavenly Father returning Patricia to you. - John 5:28, 29.
Pat and I took what we called our "Thelma and Louise" trip to CO over the 4th of July in 1993. We spent July 4th at Yellowstone National Park, watching Old Faithful go off during a wind and hail storm. We stopped at numerous geysers throughout the park that day and saw this really cute guy at several of them. We started staging pictures of each other with this guy strategically placed to look like he might be with us. I'm sure he thought we were stocking him. Your Mom made up this story about him having a pretty young wife, stuck in their car with a nursing newborn, while he got to enjoy the sights alone. We laughed about it for a couple days.
I will miss your Mom. She was fun. And such a good friend and sister-in-law to me.
I am so sorry for your loss. May God’s promise bring comfort to your family. There will be “a new earth... and He will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore... I am making all things new.” Revelation 21:1-5
