Pat, You know how much I loved your Mom. She was the sweetest, happiest, most funloving southern lady Ive known and I enjoyed every minute that I was blessed to be with her. You are very fortunate to have had her as a Mother. I know life isnt always perfect and we all have our Mother moments but, she certainly did fill your life with wonderful traditions, great trips, dinners and life experiences for you to remember. I'm lucky to have you as a friend and to have shared a little of what she brought to your life and the world. Much Love, Jodi
