Nanny, you were not just a grandmother to me but a best friend. It’s still hard for me to believe that when I get up in the morning you are not going to be in the kitchen nibbling on a bagel and checking your blood pressure. When I was young, I remember every Monday for nine years you picked me up after I got home from school and took me to CCD. I remember the nights I would prepare dinner for you when you came in from work and your eyes would light up. I loved sitting with you and eating and watching Golden Girls, Rosanne, Fresh Prince, and the Cosby Show. Regardless of how bad our days were we would always find something to laugh about. You loved everyone and were always a positive person; you made an impact on many lives. You never had a bad thing to say about anyone. I know you are happy now with Papa I know that’s what you have been waiting for. I love you and I will see you again. What is the Jewelry Lady going to do now? I guess I will have start wearing turquoise. I know your laughing. Love you! Jeremy Kirk Spearman, February 19, 2007 I will always remember Pat with a smile on her face and a smile in her heart. She was a wonderful lady and a beautiful person. She loved watching football so much and the first thing I thought about when she passed was that at least she got to see the Super Bowl so she didn't miss any of the season! Maybe seeing the Colts win the Super Bowl just pur her over the edge! :-) She was a great lady and is now enjoying Heaven with her long time sweetheart Roy. We'll be up there some day also Pat so save another hug for us! We'll always love you. Mark Sunderland, February 16, 2007 We are so sorry for the loss of your precious mother. She was a wonderful lady and one of the friendliest people we've ever known! We share your grief. Curtis and Lou Ann Raetz, February 16, 2007 Nanny was an amazing woman and I'm so glad I got to know her. It never seemed strange to me to call her Nanny - that's just who she was to everyone. She was such a loving woman and I'm so thankful we got to spend time together on our annual Red River trips, reading on the porch and watching the hummingbirds. That was our special time and I will miss her dearly. Summer Keith, February 16, 2007 Cindi, Rhonda, Roy, and family Please accept our deepest sympathy at the loss of your mother. While we know she is free and in a much better place, it just seems so hard to let go. Take comfort in the knowledge that Pat led a very full and happy life, that she was so proud of each of you, and that each of you was a source of comfort for her. You have included Lou Ann and I in so many family activities and on several occasions we shared a laugh with Pat; such a wonderful experience. We are ever so grateful for your friendship, we suffer with you in your sorrow, and we want you to know we are here to support you in your grief and healing. May God bless all of you! Curt & Lou Ann Raetz, February 16, 2007 Pat was more my second mother than my mother-in-law. When I first met Cindi, Pat and Roy accepted me into their family as one of their very own and my life has never been the same. Though I miss them terribly, I cling to the legacy of love they left behind in the hearts of their children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Pat's genuine love, warm smile, kind heart, strong faith and courage will always be remembered. I look forward to that last great day when we go to our one true home and we can see her again. I love and miss you Pat. Thank you for the blessing that was your life, Stan. Stan Keith, February 15, 2007 As I am reading all of the entries, I am thinking WOW, what an impact Pat made on so many lives. But, I already knew that. As my "second" mom, she was unique. There was no one like Pat Bond. Knowing her all of my 42 years of life, there are just too many memories to list. I wish all children these days could experience life as we knew it on Hillside Drive in Plano(new years parties, purse trick, hide and seek, sneaking out, and so on and so on!!!). Oh what good times we had. Though we moved and do not see each other very often, the Bonds and Smiths will forever be one big family. Cindi, Rhonda, "Little" Roy, I love each of you and will have you in my thoughts and prayers. Though we miss Pat, she is where she was meant to be - at Roy's side. I feel blessed to have been part of this family. Thanks for the memories Pat, I will treasure them always!!! Melody Smith McMichael, February 15, 2007 I remember how Nanny could make you fell better without saying more than a sentece. It was time that she went to live in heven with Pawpaw and her babies, and I'll except that. I will never forget her ever. Katrina Michelle Bond, February 15, 2007 I had the privilege of bowling with Pat nearly every Sunday night for eleven years. Pat referred to me as "Son Number 2..." It's the only time I didn't mind being second best! I have nothing but fond memories of Pat: The time she and I went to the Rangers game, all the times she and Roy would take me out to dinner, or when she would call me at work just to talk. She never had a bad word to say about anyone. I even told her she was too easy on people...I was going to "toughen-her up!" As it turned out, it was she who "softened me-up!" Though she is gone, there is a place in my heart which belongs to Pat Bond. I treasure my time with her and hold precious my warm memories. Sadly,I miss this lady. My thoughts and prayers are with her family. Joel Miller, February 15, 2007 As a true part of our Aggie football tail gate tradition with more energy than many of us you will be missed dearly. Monday Feb 12 I had a dream in which you appeared so radiant and happy I had to catch my breath. You surely are in a better place now, pain free and at peace. God bless you and thank you for being a part of our lives! laurie and david reasonover, February 15, 2007 We lost a very amazing person who would do anything for you in your time of need. Hopefully we can take a little lesson from Nanny. Although we know you are in a great place with some good company, we still miss you Nanny. Love, Brandon Brandon Keith, February 15, 2007 I bowled with Pat for many years and will miss her smiling face. One year at the State Bowling Tourn. she made me wear a green shirt with ladybugs on the shoulder. I will forever think of her when I see the ladybugs. Pat I miss you already. You were a dear friend. Deborah Thompson, February 14, 2007 Rhonda, we are praying for comfort for you and your family at this difficult time. Love, Angela and Carli Angela & Carli Whitfield, February 14, 2007 Hi Nanny, Just wanted to let you know how much i'm gonna miss you! I don't know how i'm going to get through my day without hearing a "nanny" story. Seems like my mom is going to carry on the title very well though. I sure hope they have a beauty shop wherever you are! heads are going to roll if not. Well, I love you and I will always miss you. Big hugs from Jamie, Spencer and Madelain Jamie LeeAnn DeFever, February 14, 2007 A true time of sorrow for this family. We wish for all of you, peace of heart in knowing that Aunt Pat is in the arms of the Lord. Kim McDaniel Hammond, February 14, 2007 My mom was one of the most courageous and wonderful people I have known,she is truly my hero on this earth. I was lucky enough to be raised by a very loving mother and father who made sure that I always had everything I needed to live a happy life. We did not have money but we had more love than anyone could hope for, that is what makes a lifetime special. I only hope to make my children and grandchildren feel half as loved as she did. cynthia keith, February 14, 2007 I'll remember Pat mostly for her love of family and her laughter....mostly at Rhonda's expense...!! The Bond family gatherings have always been full of love and laughter and I've been blessed to be a part of that! Pat is with Roy now, there will be another empty spot, but the legacy of their love will continue! Lisa Keith Sunderland, February 14, 2007 Pat was a wonderful inspiration to keep doing the things you love in life! We enjoyed spending time with her at the A&M football games. She had great spirit! Kyle & Meredith Liner, February 14, 2007 Unfortunately I didn’t have the chance to know Mrs. Bond, but Scott spoke of her often. From what I learned from Scott, Mrs. Bond was a very special person and, although she did not attend Texas A&M, she was an Aggie thru and thru. I can closely relate since my grandmother adopted A&M as well. My thoughts and prayers go out to Mrs. Bond’s friends and family and in the spirit of Aggie Muster she will forever remain with us in spirit. Here. Tony Wells, February 14, 2007 Nanny Pat, As long as I have known you, you were always full of life, energy, and happiness. Aggie Tailgates will never be quite the same without you. We love you, and miss you! Julie Baldwin (Reasonover), February 14, 2007 God needed another beautiful angel. Ms. Bond will never be forgotten. Sonia Michele Smith, February 14, 2007 Dear Cindi, Rhonda and Roy, My heart goes out to you at this very difficult time. While there are no words that anyone can say that will ease the pain you feel at this moment, know that our love, thoughts and prayers are there to comfort you as best they can. Your Mom was an amazing, gracious woman. So kind, gentle and caring. She always had a smile for all of us. And never once do I remember a cross word being said. Your home was always a haven for many of us. Knowing there was never judgement, just love, acceptance and true caring for whatever we might bring. It was a great honor and pleasure to have been a small part of your family. Your Mom touched so many of our lives, and always for the better. She was an amazing role model, not only as we were growing up, but later in life as we dealt with our own children and issues. Please know if I could do anything to lessen your pain right now I would. All my love to you. Gina Whetsel, February 14, 2007 While I did not know your Mom and grandma, Cindi and Scott, I am sure I knew her through the both of you. I know she was a strong woman and you will miss her. You will all be okay though as you have something so wonderful to look forward to that will help you get through this time in your life. Please know that you are always in my thoughts and prayers. I know what it is like to lose a mom especially a good mom so I will be thinking of you Cindi. Take care. Dana M Smith, February 14, 2007 We hope our heartfelt thoughts of you during this sad time bring some small comfort and strength. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and all your family. Jason Rannebarger & Family, February 14, 2007 She was a lovely lady and a loving Aggie Grandma. We prayed for her daily from the day we heard she had taken ill until the day she past. We lost a great one, but our loss is heaven's gain. She's in God's kingdom now and at peace. We love you guys and wish you all strength during this hard time. Jim and Sarah Pike, February 14, 2007 While these times are so difficult it is important to remember His design. Although she has moved on according to that greater plan, her spirit remains with all of those she touched during her life on earth. We met Pat briefly in the 80's but were immediately impressed with her love and devotion to family. She was a great example of Christ's love to be carried from generation to generation. We pray that God's eternal love will carry you through this trial and focus on her love as an inspiration for others to follow. Larry & Sharon Whited, February 14, 2007 Mom, I miss you terribly and always will. You are the bravest person that I know and I will keep you in my heart forever. Thank you for giving me life, and teaching me about Life, Love, and Faith. Give Daddy a big hug and kiss from me. I love you forever! Rhonda McClendon, February 14, 2007 Nanny Pat is my grandma and words cannot express how much I miss her. Here are some of my favorite memories: 1) How every phone conversation seemed to end up in her giving a detailed description of her daily tasks, including house cleaning, bathroom trips and whether or not she had taken her bath yet. What I wouldn't give to hear one of these again! 2) How she would chase Jeremy, Jason, Brandon and I around the house with a fly-swatter whenever we had done something wrong. 3) How much she loved going to Red River, New Mexico, especially after Papa Roy passed. 4) How much she loved the Cowboys and hated the Redskins. 5) All of the Aggie football games we watched together in person at Kyle Field. 6) How welcome she always made my friends growing up feel welcome. Many of whom looked at her like their own grandma. 7) How much she loved spending time with the family. 8) How she used to inhale air through clenched teeth in quick bursts and stomp a pretend break peddle in the back seat of the car she for fear that the driver might forget to hit the brake peddle himself. 9) How she owned more turquoise jewelry than anyone else on the planet! 10) The tears in her eyes a few weeks ago when she told me how happy and proud my Papa would be that Summer and I are going to have a baby. I love you, Nanny. Scott Keith, February 14, 2007 I am thankful for my treasured memories left by Pat, my sister-in-law and my friend. Wanda McDaniel, February 13, 2007 Bowling down the hall with Cindy, Rhonda, and little Roy in the old Plano house while Mom, Dad, Uncle Roy and Aunt Pat played pool and screamed at us to "hold it down". Now, looking back all those years, life never got any better than that. Families grow and go their separate ways and it seems they only see each other in times of sorrow. It is so strange that it is during those times when we have our fondest memories. I will always remember Aunt Pat's laugh and sense of humor. I don't ever remember seeing her mad. Knowing where she came from and the times in which she lived, she was a very rare and special person. Brian Dean Cogbill, February 13, 2007 Cindi and family...Please accept our condolences. You have been in our thoughts since your mother became ill. Love....Sharon and Larry Whited Pat Bond, February 13, 2007 I didn't know Mrs. Bond very well. I have know Cindi since 9th grade. Cindi has always cherished her mom and her sorrow is my sorrow. Deborah Dee Vines, February 13, 2007 Dear Cindi, Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and all your family members at the loss of your mother. Mothers are so special, I know you have many great memories that will carry you through. God Bless You, Steve Steve Franks, February 13, 2007 Cindi & family, Judging by her children's example, Pat Bond must have been a wonderful mother & friend. The faithful love & care you all gave her during her illness was amazing. Most of us can only hope for that kind of support when our time comes. May you be comforted by the knowledge that you served her & your Lord well. Much love & peace to you all. Jerry & Jean Ann Jones, February 13, 2007 In the sad times of life, its's part of God's plan for friends to help friends any way that they can. And knowing your friends are always praying for you. We will miss you dearly. LOVE, Larry & Deatrice Goodson Larry & Dee Goodson, February 13, 2007 Thinking of you, God Bless all, Ross Ross Jones, February 13, 2007 You are a very special lady. You have gone where there is no pain and no suffering. You will be missed but not forgotten. We love you dearly and will carry you in our hearts. Rest in Gods loving hands. Linda F. Bond, February 13, 2007 May God's blessings be with you all and may God forever keep Pat in his arms. Mario G Ramos, February 13, 2007 Pat, you will be deeply missed, your smiling face and the trips we made to many bowling tournaments will live on as we go places without you, but your always in our thoughts. Mel Carmody, February 13, 2007 My sympathies go out to Rhonda and her family during this difficult time. My prayers are with you all. Teresa Noble, February 13, 2007 My prayers and thoughts are with Rhonda and all of her family as they move through this mournful period of the Circle of Life. Mike Morrisey, February 13, 2007 Our deepest sympathy during this time of sorrow. City of McKinney Human Resources, February 13, 2007
