My dear friend Patti, I am so sorry that I could not say good bye to you. Patti and I grew up together, enjoying life and families. We lost touched as we had done in the past. But, one of us would always try to find the other with much success. Unfortunatley, this time I was too late. Since moving to California 6 years ago and not making it back to Ohio frequently it has been hard to stay in touch. I am so sad to hear that she is gone. Her children are delightful and very caring. She was a wonderful Mother to her children. She had always put them first and tried to give them a good life along with friendship and guidance. I pray that she is in a happier place. I miss and love you very much my friend. Patty Mankes Lendvay Humphrey.

I meet Patti while we were doing chemo together. She was so much fun. It made our time at the doctors more enjoyable. My husband loved kidding around with her. She wore a different pair of shoes or boots every time I saw her. She was such a fun spirit. We will miss her so much!!!

Aunt Patti will be dearly missed by us. For such a small, petite lady she gave the biggest hugs and had the biggest smile. We were lucky to have met such a wonderful person, and we will think of her each day and smile. So sorry for your loss and our prayers are with you all

I love you soo much mommy. I know that you will always be looking down on the boys and I. I know we had our differences before but I cherish being able to spend the past year with you. We had our struggles with each other but at the end of each day we still stayed strong. You fought a hard battle and you did an awesome job at it. Like I said before you taught all of us kids to be strong independent people. I'm going to miss you each and everyday of my life. I find comfort in knowing that you are no longer in pain and you are now home spending time with grandma jones. We all love you and will see you again. I promise to raise River and Adrian to be strong and independent just like you raised us. Please guide me in the right direction <3
