Uncle Bob, and the entire Couto family,
We were so sadden to learn about Auntie Pat's passing. My heart breaks for all of you. That was one person who lived life to the fullest. I'm thankful for all the laughs we had, and all those Thanksgiving dinners and all the family time spent together. We loved hearing all the adventures and travel stories of the most fun couple we know. She will be missed but never forgotten. Our deepest sympathy to all of you, that she loved most. May she rest in peace.

Our deepest condolences and love,
Julie & Stephen
