My favorite memory of Pat is when Paula was in Yale after the operation for the brain tumor it was time for us to come home.I had stayed up there for 3 weeks and didn't have anything in my house as far as food ect.Pat was at my house waiting with a hot meal and food in my fridge.I never had anyone including my Family to this day step up and help us. I couldn't be more thankful for having such a caring and loving friend.She told me to shut up and that's what a God parents job was,to take over when the Parent cant I was totally not with it because of almost loosing my babygirl,and she knew it.I loved Pat even though we lived so far apart,I wish my Mom could be like her. To Karen, Penny and Elen Even through the rough times she loved you all. You were truly blessed to have her as your Mom. With love Judy and Paula

Dear Momma
As we approach the four month mark since you've been gone it doesn't get any easier. We will continue to celebrate and remember you. At the end of this month we're having the party you wanted us to have and getting smashed, as you put it. I think of you always and I cry a lot when I'm alone. We were finally in a good place and I miss you so much, the pain is unbearable at times. I know you are always around watching over us. I love you beyond words.

Dear Mama,
As I stand by you today I am so grateful that God, Kelly (Grandpa), Nanny, and Uncle Steven spriritually helped me coordinate our last family reunion in January.
It was an amazing day of love, laughter and lots of hugs and kisses. The memory of that day will help me get through this very difficult farewell knowing you were happy and felt loved. Until we meet again mama, xo.

Dear Mommy,

I have missed you every second of each day since you have gone on to the next chapter of your life. I know you are with Grandma, Grandpa and Uncle Steven and having a wonderful time dancing because you have no more pain. Not only were you my mommy but my best friend, I have enjoyed and will treasure all the time we have spent together through our years. I love you to the moon and back and giving butterfly kisses. I will see you again someday. I know you will be watching over me, Caren and Ellen from the Heavans above!

I Love You XO❤️
