Patti and I have been friends since we met on a trip to Israel. Whether we were riding to a concert together or just chatting at church or on the phone, we always had a nice time. She was like a sister to me and I'm going to deeply miss our friendship. Kirk

I met Patti at church and knew her for about 5 years. I loved her steadfast faith, her joy, her care, her kindness, and her spirit. She was so strong, even in the midst of adversity. She loved much. My consolation in this loss is that I look forward to a wonderful reunion someday with this sweet sweet lady!

Patty was a very special gal, we had good times together and I will always cherish those memories. When I said goodbye to her a week ago tonight I did not think that would be the last time we hugged each other here on earth but I also told her that I would look forward to seeing her again in Heaven someday.My prayers go out to you as a family as you go through this difficult time, you had a wonderful mother and grandmother!

July 29, 2020 is my email address and my name is Wilma Nyburg, I just posted a comment but wanted to let you as a family know who I am.  My sincere sympathy goes out to you all.

I am one of Patti's Zumba gals.  God bless your family with peace and comfort during this difficult time of separation until we can all be reunited with our heavenly father and each other.  We danced for her last night.

AJ and Renee  you know your mom and I go all the way back to high school. We played we laughed, we were together when they announced the 911 tragedy. I was there when you both got saved!! These last couple of years tho' we didn't see much of each other, but when we did at church our mouths would go 90 miles an hour to catch up. I did not realize this lung cancer was there, she didn't tell me, probably because my sister in law had just passed into heaven the last time I saw her, so Patti being her, she would not have further burdened me with it. Through it all she had been a rock and I'm sure when she left this earth she gave it the raspberry!! She will be remembered and missed dearly, altho I know she is walking on streets of gold and talking with Jesus!! She is in our future never doubt we will see her again! May the peace of God carry you through these dark day.
