I will always remember Pat Bender as the sweetest lady I’ve had the pleasure to meet. She was inexpressibly one in a million and the epitome of all who were lucky enough to know her.

I am so sad at the loss of your Mother Pat. She was a wonderful lady and I enjoyed knowing her. You will all be in our prayers.

I was deeply saddened when I heard about your mother/grandmother passing away this morning. She was such a nice, classy and lovely lady. I have such fond memories of going to stay with her as a little girl and helping her and your Father/Grandfather in their wonderful garden they had. I love gardening today because of my first experiences with her. I also remember she would give me yummy food that I really liked and she kept me safe from having to eat soybean hot dogs and tofu at my brothers! She was my savior!
