  • My sympathies go out to the Carper and Nasby families. Patti and I grew up together, from kindergarten to 12th grade. During our senior year, she played my daughter in the one-act play, “The Proposal” by Chekhov. That was a fun time. My thoughts are with her family.

  • We are so sorry for your loss because Patti was such a truly wonderful person. She would light up a room with her presence. How do you measure a person’s life? No one really knows, but we do know that we are much better people by having known her.
    Pat and Terry’s dedication to their love, marriage and family showed us the true meaning of love.
    You are in our thoughts and prayers. Jeff & Mary

  • Sorry for your loss. . I remember the days of our children growing up together. Our thoughts are with the family, may you find peace in each other knowing she is in heaven with many loved ones.

  • My thoughts & prayers are with you all. Patty & I spent many good times during our Junior & Senior yr. at JFK, and after. One of many special memories was our trip to Cape Cod right after graduation. Patty, Rosemary Gerace (who also sadly left us all to soon) & I were so excited to be going off on our own for a week at the beach. Terry & Patty met on our second day there. Talk about love at first sight! She was sad to leave you Terry on our last day & talked about you all the way home. She was afraid she might never see you again, but you were not going to let that happen. Waiting for her when she got home was a dozen roses & a note of love! I was thrilled to be her Maid of Honor when she married the love of her life, & felt blessed to have her as mine a year later when I married. Patty was such a kind, thoughtful, and loyal friend. She will be missed & thought of often. May her beautiful spirit & legacy live on in her children & grandchildren. My love to you Terry & all her family.
