    To Mama
    From the very first day, your smiles, your concern for everyone you came in contact with, and your enthusiasm for life, family and of course, sports made everyone love you more than you could ever know. We will never forget you mama and our lives really wouldn’t have been as happy without you being part of my family. You called me your chosen son and I called you mama because that’s how we truly felt about each other and it was so nice to see your face lit up with the biggest smile every time I seen you. You are an angel and now you are with all the other angels and now you get to meet my mom. I know she will love you and take care of you just like you took care of everyone. I will smile every time I think of you. We love you Mama!

She always had a smile on her face , her love for her family was big and if she befriended you it was for life. Pat my friend I will miss everything about you But your biggest love was for your animals and that, I admired and respected you for. ❤

    In case I don’t make it to the service. My condolences to the entire family. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

    I like to think that Grandma Pat had a hand in raising me, and I will always remember/ appriciate her help as a young adult when I needed.

    I will always remember stopping in on garage sales with Grandma Pat, that was one of my favorite things to do with her, Not to mention in that huge old beige station wagon she drove.

    Until we meet again.
