  1. Pat and Bob were wonderful people. We had many great meals together, going to plays and the annual Concordia Christmas Concert that we went to for years with Eleanor. Pat took many of my adult education classes when I was at Holy Spirit. And I would spend hours with Bob in the glad fields. I saw Pat the last time I was in Fargo. We had a very nice visit. I will offer a Mass for her soul.
