You will forever be in our hearts. I will miss our phone calls and meet ups for breakfast. I will miss your letters and kitty pictures and cards. Your famous way of getting every cat in the house on a single picture always made me smile. The cute stickers you would add to your envelopes were so special. I will truly miss you Pat. I am so saddened that I will never see your smiling face or hear your voice but I know that you are free from pain now and watching down on us from heaven.
