    It is with deep, heartfelt sympathy to learn about the passing of Mom’s roommate, Pat, at Crouse Community. She was always so quiet and sweet. May fond memories warm your heart and turn your tears to smiles. We are certain they are both at peace with loved ones in Heaven. All our best, Steve and Linda West
