Patti was such a super "people" person to work with . We worked on many, many projects together and each time was the more enjoyable than the last.. Special memories are when we worked with Evelyn Harper, Lena Langton, and so many, many others (too many to mention) during our over twenty-five (25) years with the PGUSD PTA Butterfly Bazaar way back when. Patti always worked so hard at everything she did - always doing more than her share - and never hesitated to thank each one of us for working with her. Such a happy, caring, beautiful lady. I cherish the fact that she allowed me to be her friend. Such precious memories! She helped make my life more complete! THANKS SO MUCH FRIEND!!!!!!
