    I will always love you sissy. You’ve always been my rock, my best friend, I keep listening to your voicemails as I can’t believe your gone . Know you are loved and missed by so many and I think God made a mistake by taking you too soon from us . Until we meet again my beautiful sis. I love you so very much.

    To Patty’s loved ones —— I treasure our drive in CA. The back seat was filled with Peppermint Patty wrappers in honor of Patty & our sweet tooth! Patty smiles on all of us & is still with us in spirit! Love you all, Sister Gwen Hennessey

    I remember the day when Patty told me I was the son she never had. From that point, I always called you mom. You fed me, took me to my appointments and included me on your vacations. I will miss you mom. ❤️ you always.

    My friendship with Patty has always been intermittent but alway a fun and enjoyable situation. I will always remember her for her better side of everyone’s point of view . There was something about Patty that made me smile I regret not getting to visit with her and her family more but was there enough to love them all. My condolences to you all I will truly miss her and hope to see you all again soon. Love you always Jim…
