    May you be at peace in heaven now with John. You were very special to me and my family and you will always have a special place in my heart. My best memories were of our girls week in Tuckerton and going to LBI. You had a heart of gold and were one of the classiest ladies I have ever known.

    Aunt Pat,

    Thank you for the many great memories that you and Uncle John gave me. You always made me feel welcome and loved. Those times down the shore were magical and I will always remember your kindness and generosity towards Bonnie, Amanda, Matthew and myself.
    I am a better person to have known you.
    Rest well,
    Rich C.
