Patti always treated me like her own. At times, I was over at her house every day. Thank you Patti for giving me a second place to call home. I am glad you are finally at peace.

Pat was a Bonus Mom to my son from 6th grade through Senior year. Pat always had room for "one more kid"! Between her & her daughter Tracy, they showed me it really does take a village to raise a child. I'll always treasure those times & Tracy thank you for all you did right by her side then & in the last years.
