Growing up, Pat was my favorite cousin, mainly because she was so much fun to play cowboys and Indians with. That all ended with the death of our grandpa, when Pat's dad moved his family from Iowa to Missouri. There were the random phone calls and sporadic visits after that, and I always tried to remember her birthday, but it wasn't the same. I loved her and will miss her laugh.
Tammy, Lisa and family- I am so sorry to hear about your Mom. She was such a lovely person. I always enjoyed our visits when she came in to Physicians Medical or I ran into her at Evans. Prayers for your entire family during this time.
