    I am SO sorry to hear of Patti’s passing. I enjoyed very much getting to know her when taking Sunday morning Holy Communion to her! I found her to be a very loveable, dear lady who never complained about her ills, but rather always had words of thanks and a smile for me. I will miss her as I know her family will miss her.

    I enjoyed working with your mother and getting to know your family. I am sorry to hear of your loss. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. When someone dies, I think of them as being angels. They open their wings and surround the family with their love and care. May God give you peace.
