 I just learned of Pat's passing! I'm sorry for your loss! I worked with Lennie for many years at PPG.  Such GOOD people, Lennie and Pat! We stayed in touch for years after Lennie's retirement! My only regret is I didn't get to see her before she left us!  They'll BOTH be missed!  I'll be SURE to keep your entire family in my prayers!
