Aunt Pat and I talked almost every week on the phone for many years and I have a large email 2 days before her passing. She loved life, her kids, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. She was a Beautiful person inside and out and was friendly to anyone who was friendly and wanted to share their life experiences. I will miss her dearly! She always said "I love You" before hanging up on the phone and meant it. She was not fake or hateful and I cherish our moments together. She is a Great loss to the World and her example should be followed. I know without a doubt that she is in Eternal Life in Heaven with all her love ones. God Bless her and her family. May she rest in peace forever. Bob & Jean Bathgate of Chicopee, Ma.
