Dear Lane and Bobby. I want you , and your families, to know how extraordinarily dear and precious and beloved Pat was to me ( Lucy Baskin Gerken)! I know I speak for many of my friends who were part of a small group of teens who met at Pat's house on afternoons. Supposedly we were having a ' church group' but actually she gave us lemonade and salsa and chips. Mostly she gave us an uninterrupted listening ear, unconditional love and acceptance, and wisdom of a humorous, gentle, Godly, safe, healthy, way. Never did we feel judged. Always we felt loved. She cooked special meals for us sometimes too. I think I recall pecan pralines too. She always greeted me/us with huge love and smile. I'm so thankful for her in my life!! God give you Peace

Lane, My condolences to you and your family. I knew your mother many years ago when she and I both played tennis. She was the kindest, loving, and fun person. May God keep His loving arms around each and every one of you at this time.

So sorry, Bobby and Lane. I know you must be hurting because I am several degrees removed and I am hurting. Pat has been a part of my life forever, from when i was a little girl, admiring her looks and spirit, to when I was grown when she became a good friend to both me and my mother. I have many fond remembrances of Alora and Pat and my mom. What a bunch that was. I will always miss them.
