Aunt Myrna, Candy, Terry, Jenny and families, I am so sorry to hear of Patty's passing. I will always remember the trips to Grandma Parker's house growing up and the visits with Patty and all the cousins. Those were our special summer trips and Patty helped make them memorable for me.

I was just thinking about her last week. I am so sorry to learn of her passing. We worked at Lucas County Board of D.D. for many years, and she was a very compassionate and caring individual. I retired over 10 years ago but for some reason some funny memories came back to me early last week. May you find Peace and joy in her life and memory. My deepest sorrow and condolences to the family and friends.
