We are so sorry to learn about Patricia’s passing, especially since we were not able to attend calling hours. We extend our heartfelt prayers and our thoughts are with you during this difficult time. A poem that may be of comfort is “She is Gone” by David Harkins. It reminds us to remember happier times and to make choices that do so when remembering our loved ones who are gone.
