Pat was always so sweet to me and my little family. I probably have a scarf or hat made by her for every day of the week! ? Although I know she's in paradise, I pray for her friends and family who will miss her deeply and grieve her passing. That reunion in Heaven is probably an amazing thrill right now! Love for eternity, lovely lady. See you on the other side. Godspeed.
