Pat and Bob were the first couple to invite Cris and I into their home after we joined the Prime Time Class in 1987. It was very soon thereafter that they taught us to play Hand and Foot and we had great times playing games with them.
I remember what a nice celebration their 50th anniversary was and I took some pictures there. Luckily I was able to capture a good picture of them and, after I made a copy I made a stained glass picture frame to hold it and gave it to them at Christmas time---so fun! Pat was the game player supreme, always ready for the contest and I am so glad I had
the opportunity to enjoy that with her.
