  5. Kathleen, I am so sorry to hear of your moms passing. I have fond memories of her from years ago. She taught me how to make beautiful bows for my Christmas tree. She was a lovely person who raised beautiful children. I send my deepest sympathy to your entire family.

  6. I am so sad to hear of the passing of Patty. Patty and I were in school together from kindergarten (school #3) through high school. Her obituary and photos show a woman of accomplishment with a beautiful family. My heartfelt condolences.

  7. Thank you everyone—your words are helping to power my strength. My mom was/is my best friend. she loved my children, not as a grandmother, but a mother. For those that don't know, we were building a home together.
    Until the very last minutes of her life we were planning her counter choices and a her kitchen—and my phone rings and she is gone.

    I'm angry. I'm broken, I don't understand and I am utterly selfish. I am hoping to wake up from this nightmare. I can't just "call my mom"—-If you can, I beg you please do not take it for granted. I did and I will eternally hurt.

  8. I knew Patty a long, long time ago. We had not spoken in years but had a telephone conversation around the holidays. It was great to hear her voice, her forthright thoughts and insights -and laugh. I feel so lucky to have said good bye though I did not realize it at the time. I am sorry for your loss.

  9. To my dear life long friend Patty
    Rest in peace my dear friend. May God give your family comfort & strength in this great time of sorrow.
    We will always remember the good times we had over the years.
    You will always remain in our hearts, thoughts & prayers.
    Debbie & John

  14. To all family and friends of the deceased,
    Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss. Many have found true comfort in the pages of God's word the Bible (2 Corinthians 1:3, 4). In God's word we find the promise that we can be reunited with our loved ones (John 5:28,29; Acts 24:15). The Bible tells us where this happy reunion will take place (Psalm 37: 11, 29; Matthew 5:5). We are told why we die (Genesis 3:17-19; Romans 5:12), and that Jehovah, the God of the Bible (Psalm 83:18), will end death forever (Isaiah 25:8; Revelation 21:3,4). At John 8:32 Jesus said " and you will know the truth and the truth will set you free". For more information please visit the website
