My Godmother was one of the sweetest, most engaging, affectionate and gentle people around. She remained so, even in her last days when all who visited her saw these same qualities that she showed throughout her long life. Brigades of nephews, nieces, cousins, friends, young people (now adults) she baby-sat all loved her. She treated us all like we were her own. If anyone ever went straight to heaven to see the face of God immediately upon departure from this earth, it has to be our beloved Patricia Crossen Guinta. I love you, Nonnie.
