Pat and I used to work together at Beverly Hospital. That quirky angle of her head and that smile is exactly how I remember Sophie (that is what we all called her way back when) An amazing nurse, a good and honest friend. I didn't realize that she lived in Gloucester all these years or I would have made a point to seek her out. RIP Sophie

I use to walk Patti in her carriage up and down Heard St. In Chelsea. She was a kind and compassionate woman. May she enjoy the rewards her Heavenly Father has prepared for her.
