Dear AloeElite Family,
We are writing today with sad news. Our beloved co-worker, Patricia Hansen-Flaster, passed away last week. We know that so many of you shared your life with Pat; you discussed your struggles, you sought her advice, and you received her comfort. Maybe you called Pat on her cell phone, as she gave her number out freely in order to help as many people as possible. If you called late at night, Pat answered. If you called on a Sunday morning, Pat answered. And then she listened to you with her full attention and care. Pat was a remarkable woman with a passion and a generosity that will not soon be forgotten.
Pat leaves behind two adult sons, Karl and Jack, and her partner, Michael. Please keep them in your thoughts. Know that when Pat died, she understood how much she was valued and loved by all of you who knew her. She kept you in her heart through her multiple strokes and her struggles with mobility and breathing. May Pat now have the peace she so richly deserves.
If you feel moved, you may send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Remembering Pat” in the title. We will post your memories and recollections, with your name removed, on a memorial page at blog.aloeelite.com/pat
With love and regards to each and every one of you,
Your Friends at AloeElite
This is indeed sad news.
You have given a beautiful tribute to a wonder-full, lovely woman whose whole heart was into the giving of service and support.
I have been ordering this excellent supplement, only by phone, for the past 20 years. Most of those times I was blessed to place my order with Pat. I’ll always remember her calm, pleasant, smiling voice….. like a warm hug reaching out from the phone. The things you take for granted and come to naturally expect….. then, are no more.
Her family must miss her so!
Please pass along my sincerest
With Love & Big Hugs
You saved my life several times. Literally.
You were my health educator. I listened to you more than I did my doctors.
You gave me such wise advice about so many different things. You were my guru.
As I told you all the time, after talking to you on the phone, I always, always felt better.
I have an empty sadness that I can no longer speak with you. You were a most valued friend, and, even though I never met you in person, from the very beginning your kindness and selflessness shone through.
My heart is heavy but I am grateful for the memories of those rich conversations which influence me even today and will live with me for the rest of my life.
I always bemoaned the fact that I was never able to truly thank you or pay you back. Your response always was that helping me was the greatest thanks you could receive.
It that is so, then maybe you felt blessed to have benefited so many thousands of others around the world.
Pat was supremely sweet and most helpful. She will be sorely missed. Blessings
Very sorry to hear about Pat. Extremely kind and helpful. Have visited with her many times over the last 10 years.
So sorry to hear this. May Pat rest in heaven with my daughter, and other God’s Angels. (She is at peace. No more suffering.) Condolences to her family and friends.
Oh I’m so sad to hear about Pays Passing. I called her at home to secure my
order and she was always there for me willing to help me with my ulcerative colitis.
I will miss her dearly. God be with her. She was a very special person.
Very saddened to hear this news –Pat took my first order for AloeElite many, many years ago (of which on advice of my doctor I continue to take daily) –always looked forward to hearing her voice on the phone and over the years came to know Pat as a truly kind and gracious lady who truly loved all who came in contact with her and, of course “her own family”!

Hi I’m Karl, Pat’s son thank you for taking a moment and leaving your warm thoughtful kind words. She is my best friend and I miss her so much. I called her everyday and now that routine is broken It hits home so hard. its actually reality. I have saved voice-mails for when I wanna hear her voice. My Mother has told me on numerous occasions that she loved talking to her clients and helping them was by far a favorite pass time. She loved helping others and making sure that no one was left in the dark about her product or any concerns. I know that she helped and touched alot of peoples lives just know she loved to know that she made a huge change in peoples lives for the better. Thanks for having my mother in your thoughts…

Hello Friends at AloeElite,
I’m so so sorry to hear this.
My son was diagnosed with Crohn’s in 2002 and I found Patricia in 2005 when she was working for another company. I’m in London, UK, and still she gave me her cellphone number and rang me and whenever my boy had a flair up and I needed more aloe I’d get in touch with her and she would always reassure and support and having her there was such a comfort every time.
The last time we were in touch was in 2015 and I wish with all my heart I’d let her know that my son is in remission, has had no flair ups since then and is now a Police Inspector – one of the good, kind, thoughtful ones!
I know she would have been so thrilled.
When doctors and consultants seemed to fail us, she never judged or criticised, always encouraged us to do what was recommended and her warmth and empathy flew down the phone and from her emails.
Please pass on my heartfelt condolences to her family and to all of you who worked with her.

Aloe Elite Team,
Thank you for letting us know about Patricia’s passing.
I remember initially speaking with Pat when I was looking for a new company from which to purchase my AMP. After speaking to her, I knew that Aloe Elite was the company for me. She was warm. personable, compassionate, knowledgeable and kind.
I’m thankful for how she served me and so many others who were looking for hope with their health conditions,
I am finally getting a moment to sit down and write about my sadness for the loss of Pat. What you stated in your email is exactly what I experienced. I found you folks on line because my UC was out of control and not able to be stopped with 40 mg. of prednisone a day. The prednisone was wearing me down and I needed to do something. My doctor wanted me to switch over to Remicade which, after reading about it, I was not a fan of the possibility of cancer of the lymph nodes. I told him I wanted to do some research before I did this. I found you… and Pat!
I was very skeptical about the possibility of having this do for me what it claimed but after about an hour-long conversation with her which started at her work, she left work and called me back while she was driving home and then proceeded to sit in her driveway for a while finishing her conversation with me. She explained to me that she too had UC and how Aloe Elite changed her life. I just had a feeling that she was being sincere in all she shared with me. I remember her saying that she and her husband danced around the living room when she got everything under control and could live again!
Had I not found Aloe Elite and just as importantly, Pat, I would not be where I am today where my UC is concerned.
I look forward to the possibility of meeting her on the other side!
My sincere sympathies to her family and to all who adored her at Aloe Elite.
Rest in Peace kind lady!
