Aunt Patty was wonderfful! I totally loved being around her!!!!! Of course, being spoiled, I would pout at times...well...Aunt Patty cured me of that with the lip sticking out...she said, "Joni, if you do that a bird will poop on it!" That straightened me out quite a bit. We loved playing Spoons with her! She gave it her all! And, last but not least...when Grandma Belle passes and shortly thereafter, I answered the phone at my folks' home..."Joni?" OMG...it unnerved me for a split second...thought it was Grandma Belle calling fromt he grave...Aunt Patty was wonderful and we'll miss her, but so very relieved that she is in a much better place now!!!!
