I so enjoyed our times together, reminiscing about her time in Maine, her family, and especially her children. She really enjoyed her cup of coffee and tea in the morning and reading the newspaper. After lunch always headed to the recliner to take an afternoon nap. One of her favorite activities was her artwork. I will miss Pat and all of you. And I will always remember the miracle of the ring. God bless you all.
