  1. Well mom it’s been a few months now, and I know you have been looking over everyone and I hope that you were there for Stephen when he passed as well. I miss you so much! I was hoping for things to get better, but I fear I will always have this deep wound in my heart forever. I want to thank you, I believe you saved dad’s life the other day. He suffered a heart attack but was fortunate enough to get medical help quickly that the damage was minimal. I wish I could talk to you and I know this isn’t the same, but it feels like I’m e-mailing you.
    I love you and miss you,
    XXOO Robin

    To Patricia’s family: John and I send our condolences to all of you. Robin, my heart goes out to you. I know how much your mom meant to you. Patricia was always very loving and caring to my family as well for which we are very grateful.

  3. “Pat Scire”-
    What a remarkable story of love for family, zest for life, courage and perseverance. Pat obviously had a special reason to endure everything she did for one more day with all of you, her wonderful family.
    I’m sure she will be greatly missed, but fondly remembered forever.
    Although I did not have the good fortune of knowing Pat well, we did have an email relationship last year while my mother (cousin Carole Whiteside Gridley) was undergoing treatment for ovarian cancer. Pat amazed me with her concern for how my mother was doing, while she was in a greater battle herself. It showed me what a caring and unselfish person she was.
    We are all blessed for having had Pat in our lives, in whatever capacity that may have been. She certainly left us with much to think about, and many lessons learned.
    Keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers.
    In love and peace

  7. Jackie and Bobby Scire

    Pat was the most caring, loving, worrisome woman I have ever met. And who else could look so beautiful with no hair?!! She was strength for many people and we were blessed to have her as a family member, friend, and to me, like a sister. Our love for each other was strong and she will be horribly missed but our love will stay with her forever. We were with her until her last breath but for us, it is still like a dream-we still can not believe she is gone. Gone but never forgotten. We love you Pat!
    Love Jackie, Bob and Leanne Scire

  8. One of the most memorable moments for myself was joining Tom and Pat in marriage. I was honored that they asked me to officiate. Pat will always be remembered for being a loving wife, mother and aunt. Caring, strong and independant are only a few of the words that could describe such a remarkable woman. Pat – I know you are now with your Mom, Elaine & Donna looking down and still watching and caring for the family. To Tom, Pat’s children and grandchildren, as well as the Whiteside family – our deepest sympathy.

  11. Mom, you were the best mother a girl could have or ever need! You were my best friend and my biggest inspiration, I was always looking to make you proud. Catie and Alex love you so much and are looking forward to having you as their guardian angel watching over them.

    Mom you will be missed but NEVER forgotten

    I love you forever, Robin

  12. To all of Pat’s family…we are truly sad that Pat lost her fight. She loved all of you and Tom you were the love of her life. She fought so hard to live for you, noone else would have survived as long as she did. She was one of the most gutsiest women I have ever met.

    My condolences to all of you. Laura and Mr. Whiteside, my heart goes out to you having to bury so many family members.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you! Love to you all,

    Paula and Richie Post
