Condolence from ❤️ Emma & Suzy on October 15th, 2020 3:32 am

We’re so very sorry for your loss ! We wish we were there, so we could give you all really big hugs. Emma always loved the picture books Aunt Pat made for her when she was growing up. The pictures were spot on for the things Emma liked each year. She still cherishes them to this day. Every book was carefully thought out & made with soooo much love. Aunt Pat was such a genuine, kind, caring & loving person. She had a really great sense of humor too. I loved how she always had a Christmas tree in her front window every… single… day… of the year. We will miss her dearly. You’re all in our thoughts & prayers .
