April 16, 2018

Spending special time during Dad's illness before he passed. I grew to know Pat so much more than I had previously known about her. The special woman that she was, how we grew to know each other so well, and how much I found myself admiring her...then loving her. Now I know that she and Dad will be together again. May they find each other and rekindle that love that they knew on earth in heaven. Sending loving thoughts to my sisters and their families....and my brother, Richard and his wife, Donna Sue.
