Patty always said that her and Dean dreamed about Natalie and I before we were born, but it was us that drempt of them.
The love Mom had, showed, and gave will forever be unmatched. Patty was the bright test light in all our lives. Patty's heart was so big. She always felt love for family, as well as strangers, even when people didn't show the same in return. Her heart and love were our guiding light, and without it I don't know where we would be.
Animals and the outdoors both loved mom and mom loved them. Her daddy, Frank, was on avid outdoorsman and they went on many adventures. Grandma, though, never really dressed for the occasion, often wearing classy dresses and high heels while on their outdoor adventures. Grampa Frank died when Patty was young. Patty missed him every day of her life and always shared beautiful memories of him with us. Now the three of them are reunited, finally able to pick up where they left off so many days ago.
Patty had numerous jobs throughout her beautiful life. When I was four I remember the best cookies I ever had that she brought home from a kitchen she was working at. Her favorite job was at St. Vincents hospital. She gave her best to that place, working even while injured. Most of all, though, she loved the people there and the daily interactions with them. So many people knew and loved her there and missed her smiling face when she had to retire.
She will always be alive in our heart and soul and will never perish from our thoughts. Though we will be forever sad waiting to finally see her again.
