Although we were always separated by space, there was never a time that was not memorable growing up with you Aunt Pat. Whether when we visited you, all those summers at the camp, or you greeting me after boot camp, you will always hold a warm place in my heart. My memories of you are priceless. Please give Uncle Mike a big hug and kiss from me. You will be missed, but never forgotten.
Your beloved Nephew,
