Dear Domenic and Family, You have my deepest sympathy in the passing of a truly unique and caring lady. Pat was a perfectionist in every sense of the word. The days of working with her at Macy's will never be forgotten. Pat was intelligent and I would tell her so on the days when working at Macy's got a little frustrating. Her sense of humor could never be duplicated. She will be sadly missed. Sincerely, Francine Crisconi Filliben
