Sweet lady. I was at that signing in '09 at NASM and Mrs. Collins made the rounds down the line of those waiting and I had the pleasure of chatting with her for a few moments.

I'm very sorry to hear this sad news. I too met her briefly waiting in line at the NASM. Later, when I was finally getting close to getting my book signed I heard her encourage her husband to continue even though he was, understandably, telling her his arm was really tired. I really appreciated that. My thoughts go out to her family and friends.

I, too, had the pleasure of meeting her and talking to her at Spacefest in 2009.
My thoughts and prayers to her family.
God Bless!

I too had the genuine pleasure of meeting Pat and Mike Collins at Spacefest in 2009 and was able to sit with them for lunch and dinner. She was incredibly warm, very funny and gracious to everyone. Those of us who were lucky to meet and chat with Pat and Mike will not forget what wonderful people they are.

She told me how pleasantly surprised she and Mike were at how nice everyone at Spacefest was. They were expecting for people to be a bunch of pushy collectors but were so happy to be proved wrong.

My deepest condolences to the family. Godspeed Pat.
