I am so sorry for your family's loss. The loss of those whom we dearly love is never easy to accept. May God provide comfort and peace to your family during this difficult time. (2 Corithians l:3, 4)
Although I did not know Patricia personally her husband Larry was my first cousin, I do not live in Iowa so never got to know Patricia. But I do send my thoughts of sympathy at this time to your family. She sounds like she was a great mother and grandmother..Memories stay with us always and sounds like your family has lots of them..Bette Donahe.
Wonderful woman. Loved visiting with her and doing puzzles at Windsor Manor
