Although my Aunt Pat was my shortest relative, she will always be a giant to me. I'll always remember the morning we spent together at her cottage when I was about 10 or 11 years old. Dave and I spent the night and Tim & Dave decided to take the boat out early the next morning. When I ran out and spotted them, they were already good distance from shore. And two things were apparent, they were amused when they saw me stranded on shore and they weren't coming back to get me. When I returned to the house, a bit saddened by the circumstances, Aunt Pat invited me to sit down and have breakfast. She let me have as many bowls of cereal as I wanted and boy was there a variety of good cereals to eat! What a treat that was. But the best treat for me that day, was the memory I have of sitting with my Aunt and talking. I can't remember what we talked about but she filled up my morning and made me feel like a wasn't missing anything important. So I thank Tim and Dave for taking off on me and providing this warm memory of my dear Aunt Pat.
As I got older I learned that Aunt Pat could always be counted on for her prayers and genuine concern for others. I will treasure the many conversations we had together in the last five years. I will also count my blessings that I had such a caring Aunt, one who I will dearly miss.

Sorry for your loss, especially after our family's recent loss of my dad. It really hits home when we lose a parent. I'll be having a Mass said, as well as donating, when we return from Florida in May. May peace and love be with you all. In sadness and joy, your neighbor and friend, Marcia.
