I always remember how much our mother admired her sister Pat for creating her own business like she did, and I always admired my Aunt Pat for being so adventurous and being the only one besides my mother to visit me in the Soviet Union. I still remember our dinner in a Georgian restaurant in Moscow that used to be Stalin’s favorite. I am so sorry I cannot make it to the funeral and share more memories with everyone. Lisa
