What is there to say about Patty. I feel so privileged to feel that I knew Patty like no one else, but than again she made everyone feel that way. Patty was truly one of a kind and will never be forgotten by our family or anyone she touched and filled with life. My thoughts go out to my Uncle John & Patty’s family. The kitchen will never be the same. Love you Patty!
