My sympathy to the family of Pat Abrams. I miss her and appreciate her gracious teaching over the past 3 years. She was strong in her skill but gentle and always considerate of others. Donna Bening, January 31, 2014 Pat was my yoga instructor for under one year. But, I will always remember her gentle loving way of teaching and how she was able to say everything in a positive way. She is loved and missed by her students. Carol Eshelbrenner, January 28, 2014 I will miss Pat forever. She was such a wonderful friend and a beautiful person inside and out, so kind and soft spoken, always classy and well dressed, a wonderful cook, so fit and healthy, and a wonderful mother and wife to Glenn, Ryan, Bobby, and Lizzie. She touched so many lives and will be remembered and missed by so many people. RIP my sweet friend. Anne Pongrass, January 10, 2014 I just learned today of Pat's passing was so sad to hear it. Our kids swam together at Plano East. She was on the board of the booster club and so pleasant to work with. Our prayers and thoughts go out to the family, especially Lizzy! She was a special lady! Sheryl & Michael Kirchner, January 8, 2014 Pat was my yoga instructor at TGI Fridays. Trust me when I say that I wasn't a great student. However, her kindness, patience, and encouragement kept me coming back and enjoying yoga and her for years. I can only imagine what a wife, mother, daughter and sister she was so my heart breaks for her family. She will be sorely missed by many, including me. KC Cunningham, January 7, 2014 My heart ached so when I heard of Pat's passing. She was a loyal friend, an excellent teacher both on and off the mat and I wish I had known her longer. To her family, please find comfort knowing that she was a wonderful, patient, loving person to me and I'm sure many others. Lisa Wiggins, January 6, 2014 Pat was an inspiring yoga teacher. I hope her family finds peace over time. Karen Dempster, January 6, 2014 Words seem inadequate to express the sadness I feel regarding Mrs. Pat Abrams departure to glory. To the family: Pat was a great instructor, excellent person and friend I could talk to anytime and I shall truly miss her presents. Take comfort in this bible verse, the Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I take refuge; my shield, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower. Psalm 18:2 Lawrence Pero, January 6, 2014 With deepest sympathy and prayers for your peace and comfort in this time of loss. Pat will be missed, but never forgotten. God Bless you all. Gary W Berger, January 4, 2014 I am so sorry for you, the family, of Pat. No one has ever touched my life like Pat did. She did so much more than teach me Yoga. I feel honored to have known her and hope that your pain diminishes with time. Debbie Green, January 3, 2014
