Thinking of you during this difficult time. Although I never had the privilege of meeting your mom, Patty you spoke of her fondly often. I had the pleasure of picking out one of her beautiful quilts for one of my friend's first grandchild. She will be missed and I will be praying for you for comfort in good memories. Love, Irene
