I had made many memories with you. Now you yourself have become a memory.
I have many moments in my life that are completely unforgettable and many of those were spent with you. I love you for everything that you are. A friend, a confident, a solstice in my depths of despair. You were the sister I chose…rest easy until we meet again. I love you!
Oh Patti, I have been searching for you for several years off and on. I am so sorry to not have found you before you left this rock. I met you as an 18 year old silly teenager. You opened your home to me and was always so calm and caring in my bit of ‘wildness’ I went through. I still have the lovely crosstitch you made for my first boy when he was born. I will see you again, my friend. You are so lovely, so wonderful…I will miss you. –Rebekah Spahn
