Patti gave everyone she met an opportunity to have a new friend because she was never judgmental. She loved with determination and her whole heart. Once you made it in you were forever in. My mother, husband, and 3 daughters all love her. I wish we had met you earlier so we could've spent more time with you. My sincerest condolences to everyone who loved Patti! She is missed!
