A mother is like a flower- she graces the world with her softness she brightens the day with her presence... and when she's gone, her beauty stays with us forever.
She will be missed by many.

Marc and I had the pleasure of spending time with Pat at her daughter Pam and son-in-law Bob's house. Pat was a super
smart, fun- filled, loving woman. We so enjoyed her and she was so proud of her family! She will be missed. May she rest in peace. ♡
