Dear Patty and family,
I am truly sorry about the passing of your mom. I am sure it's very hard. Just try to remember the times you shared together and all the special memories. Remember the good times and hopefully they will comfort you in this very difficult time. It was so nice to see you but I only wish it was under different circumstances. My thoughts and prayers will be with you and your family.
