I just want to send my deepest sympathies and love to Patricia's family. I want to share the peace she brought me after I lost my very dear friend last August. I was looking for that friend to come thru and truthfully she eventually did but Patricia also shared some amazing things about both my grandmothers. She brought me peace at a time I very much needed it and I miss her. She was a wonderful special person as you know better than I do but she was loved and appreciated by so many and I want to thank her family for sharing her with the world ♥️

DANG IT PAT!!! I you have been on my mind heavily the last couple of weeks... I checked your FB profile to see why I haven't seen any posts from you for a while... Shocked isn't even the right word... You helped so many people while you were here and I just know that you will certainly continue to do that from where you are now... My deepest sympathy to all of Your Family and Friends...
