  1. Hi Morris,
    I was really sorry to hear of your wife’s passing. I remember vividly the pictures of her artwork that you shared with me. If there’s anything I can do, please let me know.

  2. Dear Morris: Al and I are in deep sorrow over the loss of our friend Pat, and extend our sincere condolences to you and all the family.

  3. Pat taught me hand papermaking at a Callanwolde class in 1989. She covered many techniques in the short class time. She always remembered me, even if we did not cross paths for several years. I loved her art and enthusiasm for teaching and learning. She was a talented and very giving artist. I will truly miss her. She was a great influence on my artistic pursuits.
