    Mom never met a person she wouldn’t help. She had a beautiful, generous heart and soul. I’m not good with words or explaining myself but she was the best Mother and friend I was privileged to have for 47 years. I miss and love you so much Mom.

  2. Sarah Marie says:

    I know what a loss this is for your family and everyone your mom knew. She was truly a beautiful person with such an amazing smile and laugh. She was such a loving and welcoming angel here on earth so I know she has beautiful angel wings now in heaven and is watching you all and keeping you safe!
    I loved how your mom always took the time and thought to do the small gestures and sweet things to make everyone feel wonderful. I still have the letter she sent me in the visor of my car where it has been since the day I received it. I was truly blessed and honored to meet and get to know her!
    All my love, prayers, and hugs to you all!!!!

    I knew Patty since I was 12 years old. She lived across the street from me with Dave and her children David, Mark, Lisa, and Rob. I looked up to her as my hero.she was always so sweet to me and my sister Barb.She always took time with us and never acted like we were a bother.Anybody that knew Patty couldn’t help but love her.Little did I know at that point in my life that years later she would become my sister in law. I knew the whole family her mom and dad for 7 years before I met her brother John, I was watching the kids one night so.Patty and Dave could have a rare night out. She had made chili that day and her brother John came over to visit and the kids were all excited to see him and they told him that Patty had made chili and to come in and have some.Everybody loved her chili.So John says he fell n love with me over P attys chili.Then 5 years later we were married.She then through the years she became my best friend .We bowled on leagues together and she taught me to become the great bowler I am ha ha 110 average, but she never gave up on me.My heart is hurting so bad at the loss of my best friend but I am honored to have had her in my life.Thank you God for putting her in my life for awhile. I love you sis.

    When I was younger while all of the boys in the family were outside working on cars and I wasn’t old enough to be that interested in cars just yet. So she would pull out this jungle themed arts and crafts set and turn the tv to my favorite shows/cartoons for the whole Afternoon and just talk to me for hours while we colored and watched spongebob. This happened almost every time i went to visit and wish it could happen just one more time.
