    My heart is heavy for the loss of Aunt Patti. She was a very dear part of our family growing up. A very loving niece to my Grandmother and a special Cousin to my Father. I was very blessed to have her as my Aunt and will always treasure our recent conversations and her kind words when I lost my Father. Aunt Patti’s love was unconditional. Aunt Patti will live on in our hearts and memories. She is with God now and her loved ones in Heaven. I pray God will watch over her family here on Earth.
