I have many fond memories of Aunt Patty. I am sorry for your loss and I hope her passing was Peaceful.
The first memory that popped into my head was about the summer I came and visited everyone. We were getting ready to show your horses in the annual Deer Park Rodeo. I was so excited and scared at the same time! We had come inside from working the horses and Aunt Patty asks Well what are you girls going to wear? We just stared and I thought oh no I sure didn't bring "cowgirl clothes " Aunt Patty was smiling and said " I was thinking I'd make you girls matching outfits"
I couldn't believe it. I was thrilled to be matching with my cousins. She made all three of us such nice matching outfits I loved wearing it.I think she made all three in less than a week. She always had fun things planned and boy did I have a FUN summer that year.
I do have to add if I hear someone say "Well Shucks " I think of my Aunt Patty.
