Patty and I became great friends when she married my uncle. She was loving, understanding and it was so easy to see why my uncle fell in love with her and her daughters.
They gave me my first beer. Didn't really like the beer but loved the horses at the fairgrounds. She and her daughters have been my family for 50 years and will remain so until we all join each other again some day.
with all my love, Diana
