    Please accept our condolences in the loss of your Mother and my aunt.
    Patty was very good to me when I was a young child, she and I got along really well and kind of had a bond. When she was married to George, they would have me come and stay for weekends and we really got along well. Although we lived in different cities we always remained in contact with one another, maybe not as often as we should have, but did keep in touch, the last few years we did talk on the phone quite often until she moved into the nursing home.
    Having lived with alzheimers in my family I know the heartache that your family went thru with such a terrible disease
    My love to all of you Louise

    Dear Bruce, Deb, Rob and families,
    Patty was my dear cousin, more like a big sister that I never had. We had such fun together over the years. Although we lived on opposite sides of the country we visited each other whenever possible. One of my greatest pleasures was when Patty would play for me, as she did so beautifully during my last visit with her. I will always remember her with great affection. All my family join in sending you our love and sympathy.
