    We are saddened to hear the news of Patti's passing. We all have many, many memories of the lifelong friendship of Mike, Patti, Albert, and Wilma, including their other extended and shared friends. We remember many good times, good cooking and stories, and Patti being the ultimate supporting mother, grandmother, and friend to many. We will miss her a great deal and pray for peace for the entire family.

    We can hardly remember the time that we didn't know Patti and Mike. High School and US Air Force is where it all began in 1954. Through the years our friendship has been secure irregardless of where we have lived. We so enjoyed the many times we could spend time together although living miles apart. A very special couple. Patti has gone to be with the love of her life. We will miss her oh so much but are consoled to know that she was well loved by all who knew her. Farewell dear friend. Rest in peace.
