I will never forget all the many memories that I have of being at Aunt Pat & Uncle Al's house when I was a young girl, both at what I referred to as their farm house & also their current house. I also seem to remember Cindy & I going to the store a lot to buy Aunt Pat "Tab" soda when I was at their current house. Aunt Pat & Uncle Al always made me feel very special whenever I was there visiting them with my mother.
My love to Ricky, Terry, Gary & Cindy and all the rest of Aunt Pat's family.
I will hold the memories of Aunt Pat in my heart for always, and will love and miss her until we meet again some day in heaven.
All my love Always,
