    I was so blessed that Patricia Leemon was in my life. She was one of the strongest and most positive people in this world. There are never the right words when you lose someone you love. Pat always made me feel special and her strength and determination and love of life was the greatest legacy she left for her 2 children. You will always be loved and never forgotten!
