I passed on the well wishes of the members of this board to Pat's family. They had a photo slide show going and a large part of them were at Disney. Her daughter was telling me how Pat and her husband always invited them to go with them, and they frequently accepted, but she would not hear of anyone using her points unless she could go to. The family expresses their appreciation for the prayers and well wishes. It reminds me how this board is much like a family, we may disagree and even bicker among ourselves but don't let anyone else mess with us.
Dean, please accept my conodolences for the loss of your friend, and well wishes to the family of the dear lady.
Traditionally, memorial threads on the DVC Boards remain for about 48 hours to allow everyone to express their condolances. After that time they are closed and moved to the DIS In Memoriam forum. This thread is being moved there now.
