Lauren.and the entire Poremba extended family, I am sorry for your loss, and not being able to make the visitation. I know this is not easy. No matter how old we get, it seems we still reach out so often to our parents. I remember you telling me that your mom was declining and I know her fight with diabetes was not easy. I hope you and your family will find continuous comfort in that wonderful promise of being free, at peace and in the ever loving arms of our father in heaven and receiving the gift of everlasting life through our savior, Jesus Christ.

So many wonderful memories with Mrs. Poremba at Komark school and her wonderful instruction in my piano lessons. Her love of music and kindness will forever have an impression on me. Wonderful woman with amazing impact on all. My thoughts and prayers go out to family and friends for your loss.

Love and prayers to the whole Poremba family. I have such beautiful memories of working with Pat in many Mater Christi shows and Guild functions. Rehearsals seemed endless, but she made them fun. Her soft spoken ways and words of encouragement were just some of the attributes she had that made us all love and admire her. The angels now have a superb accompaniest.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Poremba Family. What an incredibly kind and talented family she raised, and you were blessed to have had her love and guidance. May she rest in peace.

With sympathy on the loss of your mother. Its hard to know what to say at this very sad time because your mother will be missed in so many different ways. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this very difficult time. May the music and memories she created always remain in our hearts. It was my distinct honor and privilege to sing in the Mater Christi Choir when your mom was the music director. I will never forget those blessed and happy times. Pat was always able to bring out the best in our choir, and she always made each of us in the choir feel special.
