I worked with Pat for several years at DOT and have nothing but good memories of my interactions with her. She was very adept at working with the Department's complex mainframe computing system and was a key resource, both within and outside the Department, for bridge related information. During the Schoharie Bridge collapse ordeal she was inundated with requests for bridge data and reports and was able get everybody what they wanted. Trust me - it wasn't easy.

Good bye Patty. You'll be missed.
