Grandma, it still seems so unreal that your gone, it's like a bad dream but then I snap back to reality and realize ur no longer here with us, even tho I'm sad that ur gone I'm glad u and Grandpa get to finally be together again. U were more like a second mom then a grandma to me for these past 28 yrs. I am so blessed to have had these last 28 yrs with u and my boys were blessed to get time with u as well. Even tho Wyatt won't remember getting to spend his first year of life with u I know Zach will be able to tell him all about how special his nana Pat was and how he would have loved u and Papa Ed so much. I am sorry that I wasn't able to keep my promise to u and be the woman u wanted me to be but just Kno that I love and miss u and I will forever hold u close to my heart, I love u grandma and tell Grandpa that I'm glad he's finally able to have you up there along side him even tho we have to be without both of u down here, we know ur watching over us.

Aunt Pat and I have always been close. She was nine when I was born. Every summer when she lived in Witchita, KS I would spend time with her. As an adult we loved shopping and hanging out together. She had the biggest heart and loved her family and friends. Will miss you so much Aunt Pat. 💕
