  1. I am so sorry and sad to hear the news of Pat passing. In all my years in broadcasting there was never a nicer person. You will be missed.

  2. I’m so sad to hear about Pat’s passing. She was my mentor at CKNW/CFMI but more importantly she was my friend. I think of her often . She truly was the nicest person you could meet. We shared many laughs, her sharp wit made every day fun. RIP Pat, you will be missed.

  3. Pat, with Tony a nd my wife Marion & myself shared many dinners in our homes. Pat was a gracious host, and Marion developed a long, loving friendship with Pat. Pat was a special person and she had incredible patience.

    With Tonys passing and Marion’s passing I just know all are enjoying each other’s company Happy memories. Bless you all.
