Memories Timeline


  1. I first met Pat and Ed on a pilgrimage to Fatima in 2005. They became dear friends.
    Pat and Peggy volunteered with Lift Me Up in Great Falls and soon I did also, a great experience. Pat would help me with my knitting questions and get me on the right track.
    However, our biggest shared love was our Marian devotion and love of the Rosary.
    You will be missed, dear friend.
    Rest in peace.
