I send this sympathy message on behalf of my sister June R. Parks. She was a very good friend of Pat's when they were both still living in Leadville. June is unable to send a message but she would want the family to know how much she enjoyed Pat's friendship in past years. My thoughts and prayers also go out to the entire Ruzicka family during this time of sadness.
