To Mr. Kennedy and the entire family - In sharing my condolences I also remember so many fond memories of Pat. She was a force as a teacher, mom and devoted volunteer. I always loved her charming smile, laugh and her quick wit, whether it was in the stands at a Mercy hoops game or during a hot summer day hanging out. Her positive spirit brought out the best in everyone she met. God bless her spirit and God bless you all.

My heart goes out to the entire Kennedy family. Though I never had the pleasure of meeting Patricia Ann Kennedy, I see her light shining bright in her son, Michael, who I taught with for a number of years. He spoke very fondly of his mother, and through his stories, I learned about Patricia's character and spirit, and how she raised such a big-hearted, wonderful family. My condolences to the entire family, as we take time to mourn and celebrate the life and departing of such a great soul.
