    Pat was such a large presence - when she entered a room, she just took it over. My best memory? One day we were coming from Evans and she was eating one of their fresh rolls (this was before a food service did the catering) and she said: 'What does the roll say to the freshman girl at Carleton??? Nothing is better for thee, than me.'
