Memories of Patricia
I remember Pat and her sisters on their front porch waiting for one or the other to go to school, which I might add was across the street. Pat was a great kid and just full of life and enjoyed every experience. Living about as close as you could to school, she was almost always the first in line. Always, John Raymond

As this is the 50th anniversary, I remembered as a little girl my parents were friends with people named Kuzma whose daughter died in this fire. I remember two little girls would come over to our house with their parents. After searching I came across Patricia Kuzma and just thought I would share this as I am now 51 years old and don't remember much but my parents were friends with the Kuzma's and I just remembered this.
I'm not sure if Cindy and Karen would remember me or my sister. Our names were Marie and Debbie.
