I always thought her dad came across as more sincere, her mom seemed like a "what-will-people-think" kind of mom-very emotionally deadening. And I base this conclusion on many years of reading-watching everything I could.
Her dad was the one who maintained a real relationship with Pat until he died, despite her crimes. That speaks to real, albeit, probably complicated, love on his part.
From what I have read, Pat's mom seemed to fade out of her life after incarceration. Of course, that is just the impression I got over the years. She very well could have had a deeper relationship that wasn't ever discussed in the info we have. (Which could be said about everything in this case)
