    To the family of Pat Muchmore,

    I had the honor of working with Pat for many years at Hellman Associates, both of us in the Illustration Department. Pat was a talented artist known for her intricate paper sculptures and other well-crafted assignments.

    Please accept my sympathy,

    Stephen Hunter

    Dear Rich, Dawn & Chad and families.

    I am so sorry to hear of Pat’s passing.  I so enjoyed doing things with her when we were neighbors on Cadillac Drive some 40 years ago.  And it has been fun to reconnect with her on Facebook.  I can’t imagine how much you will all miss her.  We are all thinking of you and wishing you comfort & peace.

    Carol Coulson & Dan, Jennifer & Elizabeth
