To the Tucker family

My thoughts are with you during this difficult time. I’m fortunate enough to have many memories of Pat. She always had kind words, and this unique way of making you feel “special” I loved her flair for decorating and was so excited to have her decorate for my outdoor wedding a few years ago, I will cherish the time we spent together laughing and talking.
In the days ahead may God give you the peace you seek, and comfort in your pain of loss ♥️
