My heart goes out to the family and close friends, I grieve with you. I worked at YSI with Patty for the past 7 years and she truly has been a blessing in my life. Patty always wore a smile, and had a ready laugh for all. She was so positive, even in the face of adversity – it truly was inspiring. Beyond being such a positive force for good in the world she was absolutely fantastic at her job. She was smart as a whip, compassionate, diligent and patient, knowledgeable and kind enough to teach. She lived her life in a truly Christ like way, and everyone of us bore witness and benefitted from her energy and persona. I am so grateful to have known Patty, and only wish I had known her better. Many blessings to you, especially her daughters who I know she loved so much. The world is truly darker for her passing, but we will reflect her light that she shared and carry on her gift. I miss you Peppermint Patty.
