Daughter Pat dies


My daughter Pat died yesterday, totally unexpectedly following a routine heart procedure.  She leaves us all broken hearted, and we will all miss her terribly in many ways.  Life—family gatherings and drop-ins, will not be the same without her smiling countenance, and conversations will lose a certain zest that Pat gave them.  I only had one daughter and she was the best.  She helped me in so many ways I cannot count them.  The month she and I spent cruising the bay of South Padre Island a year or so ago looms huge in the memory bank.  I loved her.  Her two sons and four brothers and everyone else loved her.  We take comfort in the fact that she knew that when she left us.
