  1. CandleImagePat Hotzel was my Mother’s sister. We visited the Hotzel’s most of my life and spent time with the family. I have always loved Aunt Pat and will miss her dearly. She was a very positive part of my life.

  2. CandleImageAs a son of Pat’s baby brother, Ambrose Claude Murphy, I have felt fortunate to have my Aunt Pat enter my adult life nine short years ago. Immediately we bonded and spoke almost weekly on the phone. I loved her honesty and pragmatism as well as her laughter. Being an avid believer in positive thinking, she often raised my spirits. I loved her very much and will greatly miss her voice over the phone.
