I will miss Pat so much. She was so much fun to have for a neighbor living across the hall from me. I loved her high spirt, fun talks, and laughs. She told me l was her reporter that kept her up that was happening in our building. It was an honor and a privilege to share Pat Burg as a close friend for 9 years. I was also grateful l was with her for a short time the night before she left. She was a beautiful friend and will always be in my heart. My heart felt comfort and blessing to her family that l really got to know. God Bless

Barb and Family, I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your Mom Pat. She was a blessing to have around. I remember the times that you and I went on our many road trip to visit your Mom and to go for lunch. /boy did she love her tea and nap time. I bet your Dad had his arms wide open to greet her at Heaven's gate. May God wrap His Heavenly arms around each of you and give you strength as you remember your Mom. God Bless you Barb and Family
