We have such great memories of Pat from the Saturday night Irish dances at the club to having lunch every day (Rich) at the Irish Connection. We had so many laughs with her. We were saddened to hear of her death. Our prayers are with her family.

Dear Paul and the rest of the Higgins clan:

My deep and sincere regrets regarding the passing of your mom. It’s been quite sometime but I have fond memories of her growing up in East Arlington as a kid and was always impressed by her love and commitment to her family. So sorry for your loss
