I shared many laughs with Patti over the years. I took over her position at Sams Club when she retired. She taught me a so much about the job that I became very successful at.. She shared her wisdom and gave me lots of advice. I will never forget Patti, I smile as I as I reminisce at some of the crazy things we did and all the laughter we shared. God Bless her family as she will truly be missed!
