Guestbook

Pat was a 2nd Mom to me when I ran around with Karen, Franki, and Gina. And then she helped watch my kids! She was always there to tell you how it really was! I will miss her sense of humor and hope Duane was ready for her! They were so funny together! I pray that your pain will get a little better every day.
