Condolence & Memory Journal

I knew Patty from grade school at St. Vincent's and then also in high school. What I remember about her is that she always had a big smile ready at all times! She had a wonderful personality....yes, always smiling --- with a super positive outlook. I think we did some slumber parties together as kids (jr high). I remember that her older brother was a priest...My condolences to her family. Ellen

My heart is broken for you, Mike.

I've been sitting here remembering all of the times that your mom embarrassed us in school by just being a loving mom. Then it occurred to me that I'm just like her in that I want to be as close to my kids as possible. My favorite memory of your mom is, of course, our senior prom. She just radiated happiness.

Thank your for sharing your wonderful mom with "our group" when we were younger. She made an lasting impact.

Here if you need anything. Sending love and strength!
