So sorry to hear about Patty’s passing, may she rest easy in the arms of the Lord. Always such a caring and giving soul. Even when she was stressed or going crazy with CCD, she always had a smile on. One of the original Long Branch MOFOs (Mothers Four), you saw the joy & light in her face in the stands at football games, or just walking the track with the other 3. Sending love & prayers to her family (both blood and not).

“When the evening shadows and the stars appear and there is no one there to dry your tears I could hold you for a million years to make you feel my love.” – Bob Dylan’s words capture the love of a wife, mother, grandmother, and friend, In Patty’s presence you felt her ever present humor, direct style, positive attitude, and determination as she faced her latest challenge. When we surround our families with unconditional love, unwavering support, and a wonderful sense of fun, we will be honoring Patty.
