    She’s won the battle! What a beautiful picture of your mom. She was so blessed to have your devotion to her care, a gift you would have no other way. You both will remain in our prayer these next days ahead.-á

    Pat was a great lady. What a fun time we had when we both went to Vegas for the first time. So many laughs and good memories, I will never forget her. She was always there when I needed someone to unload my troubles and to give me advice. She is in a better place and with the love of her life. I’m so sorry for your loss.-á
