Patti was a such a sincere and kind person and I really enjoyed getting to know her over the years. She was he most talented quilt maker I've ever met and was always so upbeat and positive. She will be greatly missed by my family, my daughter Maisie has said several prayers for her over the last few weeks. My sincere condolences to all of Patti's family, I wish we were able to make the services and heard they were beautiful.

I am so sorry for your loss. My sister, Judy, told me recently of Patti's illness. Mary was in my class, we all played softball together. Patti was an excellent ball player, team player, always kind and with a smile. My heart goes out to you. Praying for all.
